Ecological Ambisonic Recordings 001: Rainforest
James Benjamin, Danica Olders, Chipp Jansen
Upper Gallery

Thursday April 6pm EST

The ambisonic sounds you are about to hear were recorded on the pacific slope of the Talamanca Mountains in Costa Rica. This area provides habitats for wildlife, and a crucial jaguar migration corridor. Whatever time of day you step into this installation, will be the time of day you are transported to in the rainforest.


L’homme à l’aise
Danica Olders
Upper Gallery

Thurs May 7th 6pm EST

L’homme à L’aise is a conversational installation composed of mixed-media sculptures. The sculptures each have a particular voice and together communicate about the relationship between work and leisure, asking questions of each other and the viewer. What/who are we working for? Is leisure a lifestyle, a reward, a privilege?


Canadiana Threads: Le Château
Co-curated by Emma Dora Silverstone-Segal

Thurs May 14th 6pm EST

Never Apart is starting a new series of exhibits called “Canadiana Threads” with the goal to highlight and promote Canadian Fashion designers. The profiled exhibitions will take place on our 2nd floor vitrine which is a perfect space for fashion display installations. Our goal is to promote the Canadian fashion industry which has gone mostly unnoticed and under-celebrated. #CanadianaThreads

Le Château is our first of this series, celebrating the house’s history by showcasing iconic pieces from their archives which represent six decades of the company’s rich history.


Véronique Soucy
Gallery C

Thurs May 21st 6pm EST

This portraits series highlights 10 of the talented artists, musicians and activists in Montreal who help contribute to the creative scene and who inspire me immensely. Originally this series was apart of the annual 10×10 photography project in Toronto held at the Gladstone Hotel and is a testament to the diverse and culturally blooming city we live in while celebrating the people who continue to represent a queer perspective.


Five Years / Twenty-Five Faces | Cinq Ans / Vingt Cinq Visages
Saad Al-Hakkak
Gallery A

Thurs May 28th 6pm EST

We celebrate five years of Never Apart, and its music division NVA with Five Years / Twenty-Five Faces, twenty-five photographs by Saad Al-Hakkak that pay homage to the artists, activists and community members who we’ve collaborated with. This series is a glimpse into the figures who have contributed their talents to help shape Never Apart for half a decade, and who represent the fabric of our mission towards equality, togetherness and social change. We chose twenty-five of the hundreds of other collaborators we have worked with from 2015-2020.


Bathhouse At The End Of The World
Eric Kostiuk Williams
Gallery B

Thurs June 4th 6pm EST

As outdoor structures give way to failure, we congregate in secret, fantastic spaces rich with possibility. Making our way through a maze of dark, contorting hallways, we turn a corner and tumble into the deep precipice of ever-flowing pleasure and generosity. In the end, there’s still us.

The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
