Exposure

Amen nous la coupe

From May 26 to September 15, the Acadian Museum of Quebec presents AMEN NOUS LA COUPE, a traveling exhibit from the Museum of World Religions addressing the many links that exist between hockey and religion.  

The exhibit explores the feverish and unifying world of Quebec and Canadian hockey in the context of a fictional playoff series. Visitors will be able to see just how much they adhere to the “hockey religion” at many points in the exhibit.   The fans are passionate, especially during the playoffs. To see their favorite team win, they practice a religion where more than a few engage in rituals imploring the gods for a victory. Many fans worship star players, who embody common values ​​and hope. The fans hope with all their devotion that their team will carry off the Holy Grail, the sacred championship cup.  

The exhibit is a mirror, highlighting the practices of the “hockey religion” from the point of view of both the for-better-or-worse fans and those who wait until the playoffs to get involved. To encourage this reflection and to represent the idea as an image, the exhibit juxtaposes religious objects and the objects of the fans’ devotion, lent by collectors and museums. The different zones reveal, in a fun and interactive way with audio and visual content, the links between the practice of hockey and the practice of religion from the point of view of the faithful/fan.

The presentation of the exhibit is made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
