POSTEZ L' ART!
The first retrospective of the postal art project that I have been leading since 1997 was presented at the Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto from November 19, 2020 to April 1, 2021. POSTEZ L’ ART! is both an exhibition, an artist’s residency and an adventure in creating postal works offered to the community with the aim of breaking the isolation of people in these difficult times
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.

POSTAL ART CREATION WORKSHOPS
450 people participated in 34 postal art creation workshops that I led in the community throughout the project (schools, youth center, organizations offering services to homeless women, people living with physical or intellectual disabilities, etc.).
225 people have created postal works in 8 community organizations.126 postal art creation kits were distributed to families to allow postal artwork to be made in the comfort of their homes.
Just over 300 works produced by workshop participants were distributed to residents of shelters and community organizations in the neighborhood.
In recent weeks, several postal art creation workshops have been offered in schools, at the Centre jeunesse and in various community organizations. The enthusiasm of young and old alike who have so far participated in the workshops is nothing short of gratifying! A group of teenagers from the Centre jeunesse produced cards for people receiving services from the Montreal Association for the Intellectually Handicapped. The emotion could be read on their faces when we handed them the cards just before Christmas. People living with intellectual disabilities have in turn created cards for the boys at the Youth Center.
