Guided tour of Henriette Valium’s exhibition in the presence of two long-time collaborators of the artist, Marc Tessier and Louis Rastelli.
The Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto is proud to present an immersive exhibit, plunging you into the universe of the multidisciplinary artist Henriette Valium. Printed art, comics, video, music and paintings comprise an incredible body of work left by this extraordinary artist who passed away on September 1, 2021 and who remains one of the major figures of the underground arts scene that emerged in Montreal in the 1980s. He was part of a round table on printed art in 2016 during the first Montreal Printed Arts Festival, and was also featured in 2019 during the Volume 2 MTL festival: Art and the book.
In addition the influence he left on the generations that succeeded him, he left a considerable body of work, provocative and marginal, protean and abundant, sometimes enigmatic, free from any compromise, which he pursued inexorably for more than four decades.
This event is a co-production between the Montreal Printed Arts Festival, the Montreal Comic Arts Festival (Festival de BD de Montréal) and the Maison de la culture Janine Sutto.
