Stanley Février (b. Port-Au-Prince, 1976) is a Canadian conceptual artist known for his installations that focus on social and political research and issues of social change. Février sees art as a vehicle for social transformation and change, and takes an acute look at the social dynamics taking shape in Western societies, questioningthe value of life in a context of globalization, through contemporary tragedies. His work includes sculpture, drawing, video, photography and détournement, as well as site-specific infiltrations. Through installations, performances and participatory art projects, Février attempts to create spaces of becoming for making art.


He lives and works in Longueuil and Montreal. A graduate in visual and media arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2018, his recent artistic and conceptual concerns are based on institutional critique, identity issues and the violence and inequalities engendered by the latter. Stanley Février is a member and founder of the artist-run center Agrégat (2010), managing director of MAC Invisibles (MAC-I, 2019) and Musée d'Art Actuel/Département des Invisibles (2020), co-founder of the laboratory event JE/US (2020), and founder of the SINGULIERS Fair.


His work has been the subject of over twenty solo exhibitions, including Menm vye tintin & les vies possibles, Centre d’exposition de l’Université de Montréal (2023), Sobey Price: La fin d’un monde, Ottawa Museum of Fine Arts (2022), MAADI: Viva l’Artista, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2022), Is being human an absolute evil, Center EXPRESSION, Ste-Hyacinthe (2022), Menm vye tintin & Impossible lives, Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec (2021-2022), Musée d'Art Actuel/Department of the Invisibles, Web work, Galerie de l’UQAM (2021), Possible lives, Musée d'art contemporain des Laurentides (2021-2022), and America… with impunity, Maison de la culture de Longueuil ( 2019).

Rendering of future development at 7303 W. McNichols.s

Acclaimed art connoisseur and partners to bring a living-and-retail experience to Live6

On a stretch of McNichols in between the University of Detroit and Marygrove College campuses lies an inconspicuous property on a quiet residential street corner.

7303 W. McNichols is currently an abandoned building but may soon become one of Detroit’s most exciting new residential and commercial developments in years.

The project will catalyze the economic activity coming to the Bagley/Fitzgerald neighborhood by adding housing units and commercial offerings, and led, in part, by one of Detroit’s foremost art collectors, galleries George N’Namdi, the property will be a work of art as well as a showplace for it.
