Françoise Sullivan

Following its presentation at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal from October 20, 2018 to January 20, 2019, the retrospective of the work of acclaimed artist Françoise Sullivan (Montreal, 1925), is currently in circulation. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated bilingual catalogue that includes texts by Mark Lanctôt, Vincent Bonin, Chantal Charbonneau, Ray Ellenwood and Noémie Solomon.

Like an imagined Françoise Sullivan dance performance, the exhibition can be seen as a choreography in three movements. Organized with the artist by MAC’s curator Mark Lanctôt, the exhibition unfolds in three interlocking spaces that trace the artist’s decisive place in the art history of this country and underline the relevance of her practice today.

This first-time touring retrospective will feature a unique selection of works on loan mainly from major Canadian museums and private collections—a juxtaposition of paintings, sculptures, choreographic works, produced over the past seven decades. To offer a better understanding of Sullivan’s contribution to the various artistic fields in which she took part, video documents and live dance performances, as well as archival material, will be featured in other gallery areas.

This touring project, organized by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
