Founded in 1983, AXENÉO7 is an artist-run centre dedicated to advocating, promoting, and exhibiting the visual arts, while developing critical discourse around them. It is a gathering place for sharing and experimentation. Through a critically engaged program, it endeavours to expand the parameters of artistic practice and its presentation, and to improve artists’ conditions for production.


AXENÉO7 has three exhibition spaces, a residence and a workshop. The centre is led by a committee of artists and art professionals, who select exhibition projects and elaborate programming activities including artist talks, performances, seminars and publications. AXENÉO7 chooses to be a vector between generations of artists, bringing together emerging and more established practices.

AXENÉO7 has and will continue to be committed to the payment of royalties and fees according to the CARFAC/RAAV scale rates.  

Location and Spaces

La Filature inc. is a non-profit organization which manages the building through a board of directors made up of representatives from AXENÉO7 and DAÏMÔN and members of the community.
