October 21 and 28, and November 4 and 11, 2018

The bold paintings in Françoise Sullivan’s Tondo series will prompt participants to use acrylic to create circular images pierced with a window that opens onto the world of the imagination. They’ll be able to incorporate various materials into their compositions: plastic, wood, rope… who knows, maybe even a few pebbles.

Les Anarchives Sullivan
November 17 and 18, 2018

Presented by Catherine Lavoie-Marcus, Les Anarchives Sullivan are a series of workshops in which the public is invited to create fictional archives in the form of collages of images. Dancers will then use these collages as a choreographic score that they will perform as it is being created.

Central Axis
November 25 and December 2 and 9, 2018

Guided by Françoise Sullivan’s sculptures, participants will be invited to produce three-dimensional images consisting essentially of geometric shapes. Circles, squares, rectangles and triangles will be arranged around a central axis to create balances of power that will energize the overall sculpture.

Body in Motion
December 16, 2018

In this workshop led by choreographer Jean Léger, participants will be invited to master, through movements in space, certain compositional elements found in the works of Françoise Sullivan. Forms, forces, tension, dynamics, opposition, repetition … will bring us to some of the paths of inspiration followed by the artist.

December 23 and 30, 2018, and January 6, 2019

This abstract-painting workshop inspired by Françoise Sullivan’s monochrome paintings will take on its own lively colour! In small, repeated gestures, we will apply a single colour over an entire surface. The effect will be dazzling, revealing colour in a whole new way.

Cycle crétois
January 13 and 20, 2019

Françoise Sullivan’s painting Cycle crétois II, no 3, 1985, will prompt us to paint a fragmented image, with irregular outlines, depicting hybrid, half-human, half-animal figures. They will most certainly inspire brand-new stories.
