Véhicule Art (Montréal) Inc. fonds

  • P027
  • Fonds
  • 1970-1983, predominant 1973-1976, [197-]-[198-]

The fonds consists of ten series, many of them subdivided into sub-series. The documents cover the period 1972 to 1982, however, the great majority of the documents were created between 1973 and 1976.

This finding aid deals with the administrative, financial files of this organization as well as the artist and exhibition files, the publicity material (posters, art catalogues), and photographs.

There is little documentation for the activities of the Véhicule Art Inc. gallery from 1976 to 1982. During this time the gallery experienced both administrative and financial difficulties. Frequent changes of staff and insufficient funding contributed to the weakening of the gallery and its activities.

The original order of the documents quite faithfully reflected the internal organization of the gallery. Thus, the documents dating from 1972 to 1975, were relatively well organized and required no further arrangement; on the other hand, those covering the 1976-1982 period needed complete reorganization.

The fonds is organized into the following series:
P027/01 Organization
P027/02 Personnel
P027/03 Finances
P027/04 Programming
P027/05 Artists, exhibitions and performances
P027/06 Associations
P027/07 Correspondence
P027/08 Photographs
P027/09 Sound recordings
P027/10 Posters
