POSTEZ L' ART!
The Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto is pleased to present the first retrospective of the postal art project led by visual artist Pierre Bruneau for almost twenty-five years. POSTEZ L’ART! is both an exhibition, an artist’s residency and a community-driven postal creation adventure with the goal of breaking the isolation of people in these difficult times of the pandemic.
In order to comply with public health directives issued by the Quebec government, the exhibition halls of the Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto, are closed to the public for the time being. We will be happy to welcome you as soon as possible!
Make it a habit to visit this site to keep abreast of developments in the situation.
Since 1997, Pierre Bruneau has produced a monthly series of mailings intended for a select group of collectors-subscribers. The coprus embodies a memory under construction, a process that takes place over time.
