Dare Dare Gallery in Canada


Montreal is rich in attractions, including art galleries. Dare Dare is a gallery that is different from everyone: it presents works that other galleries have not taken - the concept is to provide an opportunity for development for young creative people who embody bold and creative ideas. In addition to paints and canvas, installations, multimedia and musical works of art are used here. If you love everything original and unusual - visit Dara Dara, being in Montreal: you will feel the sea of emotions, studying the works of representatives of modern art!

The gallery was founded in 1985, and since 1990, it has occupied several rooms for paintings and other works of art. In 2004, offices were opened in different areas of the city, which made it possible for talented people of Montreal to learn about the opening of the gallery and easily bring their works to the nearest office.

In 2004, Dara-Dara focused on social projects affecting various areas of people's lives. Since that time, the gallery has been wandering around the city, opening its doors in different parts of Montreal:

  • Viger Square (2004-2006)
  • “The park without a name” (2006-2008)
  • Cabot Square (2008-2009)
  • Walter Stewart Park (2009-2012)
  • Saint Laurent metro station (2012-2015)
  • Atwater Market (2015-2018).

This nomadic study was carried out in various areas, each of which had its own rich "tapestry" of social, political, environmental, economic, historical and urban problems. It provided an ideal structure to meet the needs of artists in disseminating and engaging the public in a constructive dialogue. Dare Dare helps art become known to people from all walks of life.

In the context of each of its locations, Dare Dare creates programs around a topic that reflects a modern social problem - or a problem corresponding to its current environment, whether it is related to:

  • social justice
  • green spaces
  • urban infrastructure
  • quality of life
  • social inequality
  • speculation
  • friendliness of people and so on.
