‘Proud Colours’ in Montreal’s Village.
I was invited by Daily Tour Les Jours in Montreal to participate in a project that weaves over 35 pride flags on more than 150 tubular posters on St. Catherine Street.
The posters create a timeline that starts with the “Original Pride flag” by Gilbert Baker from 1978 and transitions from one year to the next until it reaches the “Progress Pride Flag” by Daniel Quasar from 2020.
Considering the discrimination the 2SLGBTQIA+ community faces, this timeline of the sexual and gender diversity flags, fluid and in movement, hopes to pay tribute to all the nuances in the Village. For those who don’t see themselves represented yet, we consciously left certain tubulars blank to inspire the emergence of new colours.
