This retrospective exhibition highlights the key role of artist Françoise Sullivan in the history of modern and contemporary art in Quebec. It’s a chance for visitors to discover or rediscover an artist whose major impact on Quebec and Canadian culture deserves to be more fully recognized.
In addition to presenting the artist’s diverse and multidisciplinary practice, the exhibition offers an in-depth exploration of some of the milestones in her career. The various styles and approaches adopted by Sullivan over the years are contextualized with the help of archival documents.
- This exhibition coincides with the 70th anniversary of the publication of Refus global, a manifesto that marked a turning point in the cultural history of Quebec and was co-signed by Françoise Sullivan.
- The retrospective Françoise Sullivan will be on display after Montréal in other cities across Canada. This touring project, organized by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
