With its twin identity, L’imprimerie centre d’artistes strives to build a strong and distinctive artistic vision, centred on the interdisciplinary development of the printed and photographic image. Its goal is to encourage dialogue between disciplines, and bring about changes in artistic practices that go beyond the mere mixing of technologies. L’imprimerie believes that insubordination and creative freedom are the true driving forces behind invention. In a context where the main focus is digital development, L’imprimerie has chosen to embrace the material aspect of images, and to use digital technologies as a way of updating analogue processes.
The exhibition Le Chantier, a research project on the printed and photographic image at the Maison de la culture Maisonneuve is the result of a vast research and creation project that began in the fall of 2018, bringing together artists Gwenaël Bélanger, Mathilde Forest, Mathieu Grenier, Céline Huyghebaert, Janie Julien-Fort, Camille Lamy, Stéphanie Nuckle, Eliza Olkinitskaya et Étienne Tremblay-Tardif.
After seven weeks of exhibition in an evolving and installative context, we invite you to the closing reception, in the company of artists and curators Caroline Boileau and Stéphane Gilot.
