Virtual exhibition: Françoise Sullivan. An Imaginary Line
Building on the exhibition Françoise Sullivan. The 1970s, presented in June 2021 at Galerie de l’UQAM, the virtual exhibition Françoise Sullivan. An Imaginary Line grew out of the discovery of new information and unknown works from the 1970s. During those years, Françoise Sullivan discovered several conceptual and Arte Povera artists in Italy, leading her to explore new correlations between thought, text, image, and gesture. At that time, her work was rooted in photography, film, text and performative actions, embracing the realities that prolonged the impulse of Refus global from 1948. Her artistic approach was shaped by the student, feminist, labour, and political protest movements that unfurled before her eyes. Curated by Louise Déry, an “imaginary line” is drawn on a horizon that merges every moment of art, life, time, and the world.
