Les heures joyeuses at L’imprimerie – First edition

DOUBLE LAUNCH – L’Écrin and “Un artiste…! Qu’est-ce que ça mange en hiver?”
Wednesday June 20 juin, starting at 5 pm


You are cordially invited to the launch of L’Écrin, a modular exploration space designed by Stéphane Gilot and Caroline Boileau in L’imprimerie’s vitrine space. This project aims to connect the artist-curators and members of L’imprimerie to develop singular installations of their work, based on existing or in-progress artworks.

Inside L’Écrin, through the accumulation of words, drawings and objects, Nicole Panneton explores different gestures and performative actions. Some explorations will be carried out on an individual basis while others will be shared with the public. The first public performance in conjunction with Taire ce qui ne peut être dévoilé, will take place on Wednesday, June 20 between until 6pm.

Between June 2018 and April 2019, L’Écrin will present: Andrée-Anne Dupuis Bourret (August and September), “le Chantier de recherche sur l’image imprimée et photographique” (October and November), Judith Bellavance (December and November), and Julie Laurin (February and March).

Launch of artist book by Jocelyne Thibault

This festive evening will also be an opportunity to answer the question: « Un artiste…! Qu’est-ce que ça mange en hiver? » (What does an artist eat during winter?). Jocelyne Thibault responds in her own way with an artist’s book entirely produced at L’imprimerie. This work was conceived following a dinner held in the vitrine space on February 23, 2017 where she received Gabrielle Brais-Harvey, Aurélie Dubois, Martin Lachapelle-Babineau, Catherine Melançon and Geneviève Turcotte. Come and discover what the artists had to say, and what they ate…

Available during the launch: full version of the book in an edition of 13 copies and a light version in an edition of 10 copies.

Join us for this firs edition of Les heures joyeuses !
