Acadian Archives acadiennes to host exhibit by the late Peter Archambault
Location: Acadian Archives, Fort Kent, ME 04743, USA
“Peter Archambault or The Art of Transforming an Ethnic Slur Into a Cultural Icon” is the current exhibit at the Archives. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Archambault’s work featured in this exhibit represents only a snapshot of a fourteen-year period in the artist’s lifetime portfolio, the pieces here mark some astonishing efforts: in illustrating the scope of intensity and insecurity of the North American political landscapes of the 1970s and 1980s, in capturing one organization’s process of building cultural awareness and empowering Franco-Americans in the U.S. Northeast, and in questioning what it means to be “Franco” in the second half of the twentieth century.

For more information on the exhibit, please contact the Archives at (207) 834-7535.
