L'Alliance Française du Manitoba est fière de présenter l'exposition Vimy 100 — Je me souviens au Palais Législatif du Manitoba.

Cette exposition est la réflexion de la photojournaliste Racheal McCaig sur la magnificence d’un monument commémorant la bataille de Vimy: une affirmation d’un jeune pays à l’âge adulte et un moment décisif dans l’histoire du Canada.

Cette série de photographies a été présentée exceptionnellement en France, à Givenchy-en-Gohelle, près de Vimy, en avril 2017, à l’occasion de la commémoration de cette bataille où se sont illustrés tant de soldats canadiens pendant la Première Guerre Mondiale.

Vernissage le 7 septembre à 17h

L'exposition se tiendra du 31 août au 29 septembre.

The Alliance Française du Manitoba is proud to present Vimy 100 Je me souviens at the Manitoba Legislative Building.

This exhibit is the result of the reflections of photojournalist Racheal McCaig on the magnificence of a monument commemorating the Battle of Vimy Ridge: an affirmation of a young country that has now reached adulthood and a decisive moment in Canada’s history.
This series of photographs was the subject of a special exhibit in Givenchy-enGohelle, France, near Vimy, in April 2017 as part of the commemoration of this battle where so many Canadian soldiers distinguished themselves during the First World War.

Opening reception at the Grand Staircase area on Thursday, September 7, 2017

Runs from August 31 – September 29
