Pointe-à-Callière presents A Cultural Feast—a free outdoor event featuring activities, food kiosks, tastings, talks, and demonstrations—showcasing the cultural diversity of the Montréal landscape. This year, street food and the themes of two temporary exhibitions currently being presented at the Museum, The Beatles in Montréal and The Tea Roads, will be highlighted through various activities and presentations.
The Tea Roads, an exhibition steeped by Pointe-à-Callière in partnership with the Musée Guimet des arts asiatiques in Paris and 20 other lenders, takes you on a journey along the vertiginous roads of the ancient tea routes, a journey spanning centuries and continents and culminating in our hectic modern lives. Every age in this astonishing adventure begins in China, where the tiny leaves with countless benefits originated and where the three main methods of tea preparation –boiling, whipping, and steeping – were invented. The four main zones of the exhibition offer up an ancient itinerary that ventures into the realm of poetry and refinement, exploring the love of tea.
Pointe-à-Callière presents The Beatles in Montréal in its new exhibition rooms in the Mariners’ House, where visitors can re-experience the Montréal stopover of this legendary British group that revolutionized pop music around the world, and that also had a profound influence on musical trends that took root right here in Montréal and throughout Québec. Designed as an exhibition-experience, The Beatles in Montréal uses this musical event as a way of showcasing Montréal history and the emergence of “yéyé” music in 1960s Québec.
In the series of exhibitions conducted on Montreal major scenes, Pointe-à-Callière is preparing an exhibition on the Plateau-Mont-Royal, a truly iconic neighborhood of Montreal, and is seeking to borrow objects that people have carefully preserved over the years. Do you have any items that represent various aspects of the daily life and history of the Plateau, to share in this exhibition?
