En Masse means “as a whole”, or “all together”. It is a Montreal based, multi-artist collaborative drawing project. It draws life from the many creative individuals who take part in the project to create large-scale, highly spontaneous drawings in black and white.
Project Graf’roulotte was sponsored by Dare -Dare Gallery and Innovation- Youth in the summer of 2011. Innovation-Youth offers a structured environment of support for youth, 12-24 years old, in downtown Montreal. They offer artistic and nutrition workshops as well as academic tutoring and High School accreditation.
En Masse was hired to work with youth on painting a shipping container that was temporarily Dare-Dare gallery’s office space. The container was moved in different places in Montreal to expose the painting to the public.
