Opening of Refus contraire
Performances and publication launch
Galerie de l’UQAM
In French and English
May 15 marks the opening of Refus contraire, a collective exhibition. Conceived in the context of the 70th anniversary of the publication of Refus global, Refus contraire seeks to reactivate the principles of commitment, interdisciplinarity and community that animated the signatories of this striking manifesto.
Launch of Le petit pot de roses
At the opening, Galerie de l’UQAM and Éditions les petits carnets will launch their new book, Le petit pot de roses, by artist and author Nicole Jolicoeur. Evoking a stroll through a city in the French Alps, artist Nicole Jolicoeur juggles with the remains of a past experience. A story where reminiscences and poetic experimentation intertwine to evoke the process leading up to the realization of a photographic suite.
