Hochelaga was drawn for the ABC:MTL exhibit at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in 2012. The terms of an urban abecedary were used as a launching-off point for multiple portraits of Montreality. As the exhibition unfolded, white stripes started covering the titles and texts of the exhibits. When Bill 101 came into effect at the end of the 1970s in Quebec, Montreal’s municipal authorities used a similar strategy on street signs. The English words on signs—Park, Street, West, etc.—were thus blotted out with white bands in order to reinforce the city’s French character. Hochelaga’s letters echo those of the old panels that still punctuate the streets of Montreal.
