Françoise Sullivan. Les années 70 | La Galerie de l’UQAM May 14 – July 17, 2021

THE 1970s

Curator: Louise Déry
Dates: May 14 – July 17, 2021
Virtual inauguration: Thursday, May 13, 5 p.m.

Over the past year, Françoise Sullivan has been valiantly working through the pandemic, visiting her studio practically daily, deprived of contact with close friends and colleagues yet fueled by the need for art and painting. She has also been earnestly following Galerie de l’UQAM’s research activities which, after exhibitions Trajectoires resplendissantes in 2017 and Works from Italy in Tuscany in 2019, have this time delved into Sullivan’s artistic experimentations of the 1970s. Curated by Louise Déry, the exhibition reveals never-before-seen works that broaden a decade of works heavily influenced by the conceptual tendencies of the time.

Françoise Sullivan: The 1970s looks back on the artist’s Italian period highlighted by the gallery in 2019, but moreover gives way to newly discovered projects, straight from her personal archives. The public is invited to learn more about this lesser-known period of hers.

Note: Due to the pandemic, Galerie de l’UQAM will be open to the public with reduced hours (Wednesday – Friday, noon – 6 p.m.). However, please visit our website before heading over to make sure no changes have been made and to know more about our Health and Safety Guidelines. For now, visitors can access the gallery by the Berri-UQAM Metro entrance and upon presentation of a permission form that will soon be available on our website.
