About Galerie Youn

The art gallery focuses on building bridges between local, national and international emerging to mid-career contemporary artists. It currently represents two dozen artists, about half from Canada and the rest from the United States, Europe and Asia.

Located on Boulevard Saint-Laurent in the heart of the dynamic and creative Mile End district of Montréal, the art gallery presents a number of carefully selected solo and group exhibitions each year. 

In its short few years, the gallery has participated in more than a dozen art fairs across Europe and North America, from Seattle to Miami, New York, and Madrid.
