Galeries d’Art Contemporain du Belgo


More than a decade ago the Belgo building was a run-down haven for struggling artists. It has since earned a reputation as one of Montréal’s most intriguing exhibition spaces with some 30 galleries and artist studios, along with dance, yoga and photography studios. Check the website for ongoing exhibitions and upcoming openings.
