The history of 1700 La Poste
1700 La Poste is a private space dedicated to the visual arts and their discourses. Under the general and artistic direction of Isabelle de Mévius, over twenty artists from Quebec and around the world have shown their work to this day. Every exhibition is accompanied by a catalog by Les Éditions de Mévius.
Postal Station F, built in 1913, was conceived by architect David Jerome Spence. Located at 1700 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, the building was fully restored a century later, thanks to private financing from Isabelle de Mévius and the singular vision of the late Luc Laporte. This major undertaking was the architect’s last project.
