ALPHA-BÊTE "Can't we all just get Ensemble?" Is an exhibit that questions, comments, explores and attempts to unite us through language, culture and identity in Quebec through the eyes of 7 artists. The installations and artwork that fill the gallery reflect their individual experiences: growing up here, living here attending university, relocating for work and choosing to make Montreal their home.

Both French and English languages share the same alphabet as well as many words. The artists exhibiting were given the challenge to play with linguistic similarities and ambiguities that one can observe between both official languages here in Montreal. The old trade of sign painting and other various forms of signage are used to convey a message of the recurring source of controversy here at home.
