While No One Was Looking présente une exposition d'art, un magazine imprimé, une table ronde d'artistes, une projection de film, et une mini exposition, qui commémore Montréal comme ville des peuples autochtones, des immigrants et des réfugiés. Le projet vise à souligner d'expériences et d'histoires marginalisées et de décentrer les célébrations dominantes du colonialisme.

Le vernissage de l'exposition et le lancement du magazine auront lieu le vendredi, 28 avril 2017 de 19h à 23h. L'exposition restera libre et ouverte au public pendant deux semaines; les copies du magazine seront gratuites et disponibles.
