Make Believe: The Secret Library of M. Prud’homme

Archived Project


Description: Make Believe showcases forged and faked objects created through collaborations between Canadian writers and artists. The workshops associated with the digital and in-person exhibitions in 2019 were open to the public and encouraged writers and readers of all ages to use their imaginations as they enter archives and libraries, to make new art, and to question official histories given to us through the authorities of museums and textbooks.
