POSTEZ L' ART! : open exhibition until April 1.
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.
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.

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.
PIERRE BRUNEAU IN RESIDENCE AT THE MAISON DE LA CULTURE
Pierre Bruneau has set up his studio at the Maison de la Culture for the duration of the exhibition. He works there, among other things, on his mailings and on his current projects. Visitors will be able to meet and interact with the artist on site.
