In Heart and Life and Longing is an exhibition stemming from a public engagement project developed by Andrew Jackson in collaboration with DESTA Black Youth Network. Conceived as part of our Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 programming, the project was initially interested in the histories, communities and spaces of Little Burgundy, a neighbourhood in the southwest of Montréal where DESTA is located. An important site for Montréal's Black community, Little Burgundy has undergone a series of intense transformations since the second half of the twentieth century, derived from successive waves of gentrification. Given this, how can we make visible what was, and what is still there?

As a group, we decided to open these questions up to the whole city, to go beyond the specificity of a single area. How can we translate our lived experiences? How can we bear witness to the personal and collective effects of these urban transformations on our homes? How can we collect signs that testify to our fragility and resilience? The presentation of this project offers a beautiful echo of the questions posed by Stan Douglas in Revealing Narratives: confirming the capacity of images to narrate, document, imagine, feel and reflect on our current moment.
