VIRTUAL EXHIBITION: FRANÇOISE SULLIVAN | AN IMAGINARY LINE
From May 11, 2023, to May 11, 2028.
Françoise Sullivan’s long career is structured around a progression of stages that offer essential landmarks in navigating through her oeuvre: the early years, characterized by painting, dance and association with the Automatistes and signing the "Refus global" in the late 1940s; the development of choreography and the realization of various dance projects; the practice of sculpture, beginning in 1960; photography and film during the following decade; painting inspired by mythology, and then in the 1990s, abstract painting featuring the vibrant expressionism of colour.
This virtual exhibition focuses on the works executed by Françoise Sullivan during the 1970s, when she had discovered new art trends like conceptual art and "arte povera." An “imaginary line,” to use the artist’s words, is drawn through her work in photography, film, text and performance. This virtual exhibition was produced with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the Exploration and digital deployment program of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
