Written by Yves Théoret in 1995 while completing his Master’s degree in Museology, and while a member of the Board of directors of Skol, the Historique de Skol 1984-1995 was to be published as part of Skol’s 10th anniversary festivities in 1996.

Théoret’s manuscript, finally published in 2011, is now accompanied by notes written in the margins by Sabrina Russo and Anne-Marie Proulx. The project is introduced in a preface by Proulx titled The Story of a Little History. The publication contains a bibliography dating from 1995, as well as an annex listing the events and activities of Skol Gallery (1984-1986) and of Centre des arts actuels Skol (1986-1995).

The publication Historique de Skol commenté was edited by Centre des arts actuels Skol and accompanied the group exhibition Sortons les archives/Embracing the Archives presented at Skol from November 4 to December 17, 2011.

Today, Yves Théoret is the Managing Director of  the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) in Toronto.
