***Action Art Actuel (AAA) is now permanently closed***

Action Art Actuel (AAA) is an artist-run centre devoted to the promotion and development of contemporary art practices. Active for twenty-five years in the region of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, AAA nurtures dissemination and research by presenting work by artists from here and abroad.

AAA provides a stimulating environment for research, experimentation and presentation through its program of exhibitions, events and residencies for emerging and established artists. The centre includes two exhibition spaces, a residency workshop and a contemporary art documentation centre.

AAA is a centre in constant evolution, sustained by its flexible array of platforms for the dissemination, research, promotion and production of multidisciplinary works. Numerous satellite initiatives and activities complement the centre’s exhibition program, including publishing, training workshops and public events. The centre also fosters collaboration through its varied curatorial and international exchange projects.
