November 29, 2018 – March 24, 2019

Opening: Thursday, November 29, 2018 at 5 p.m.

An exhibition dedicated to a key painter in our history and his ideas on how to change society.

70 years after the publication of the Refus Global, and 58 years after painter Paul-Émile Borduas death, the many tributes to his work bear witness to the fact that his art, ideas and aspirations are still relevant. This exhibition showcases pictorial and photographic works, some of them seldom exhibited before.

This exhibition has been produced and is being circulated by the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul. This project has been made possible through the financial contribution of the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Dominique Valade, a multidisciplinary artist from Montreal, presents her latest work, featuring sculptures, engravings and textile creations.

Dominique Valade’s current work is the result of experiments conducted at the Papeterie Saint-Armand and at the Centre de design et d’impression textile de Montréal. She dyes, embroiders and engraves on paper or textile supports. The resulting art work is imbued with colors, textures and subjects addressed by Van Gogh. Among them, a series of about thirty “letters”, randomly selected among the pages of an old dictionary, immense textile creations as well as various remnants of everyday life.
