Presentation by Gwenaël Bélanger, professor and director-adjunct of the School of Visual and Media Arts at UQAM and Marie-Pier Bocquet, general and artistic director of Arprim, artist-run centre devoted to printed art.
This presentation retraces the 2021 edition of À l’Affiche, a contemporary art publishing initiative jointly developed by Arprim and the School of Visual and Media Arts at UQAM.
Learn how the artist Nadège Grebmeier Forget was able to transpose her rich performative artistic practice into the printed arts, by exploring the full range of technical possibilities and the variety of materials offered at UQAM.
Arprim’s initiative À l’affiche, developed in partnership with Université du Québec à Montreal (UQAM) École des arts visuels et médiatiques, assists the creation of original prints and posters by contemporary artists. Since 2013, the project has evolved to sustain two main goals : support and facilitate the integration of young artists in a professional setting and generate funding for Arprim’s activities. Furthermore, thanks to its focus on accessible prices, À l’affiche is an unique opportunity to start or grow a collection of works of art.
