We are pleased to announce the arrival of ANNIVERSAIRE: HI-5, a weekend long Montreal event, at La Centrale, in conjunction with the launch of the 2005 BOOKMOBILE project tour.

The show is a multidisciplinary constellation of book works, prints, wall drawings, animations, video, live performances and hands on workshops by BOOKMOBILE collective members and invited artist (listed below). The show will celebrate the BOOKMOBILE project's 5th anniversary and will feature the Airstream trailer outside the gallery which houses the 2005 collection of 300 unique book works.

ANNIVERAIRE: HI-5 will happen in collaboration with the 2nd Montreal Vazaleen event. Toronto based artist and DJ Will Munro returns to Montreal with his hugely successful night of glam-queer-punk-rock spectacle to help us celebrate reaching our 5 year mark with an all night party.

ANNIVERAIRE: HI-5 est organisé par des membres du projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE, qui est une initiative d'une communauté artistique à but non-lucratif qui roule grâce à un groupe d'artistes dévoués travaillant principalement à Montréal (Canada) et en Philadelphie (États-Unis). Le collectif MOBILIVRE soutient et diffuse la production d'artistes locaux indépendants tout en s'efforçant de les aider à former un réseau continental plus large. Le projet vise aussi à introduire des nouvelles communautés au monde de la publication et de la production indépendante, puis d'offrir aux gens des nouvelles habiletés pour leur propre expression.
