Image, hypersexualization and corporality among girls

With Valérie Guimond, master’s student in art, Université de Québec à Trois-Rivières.

Through a feminist ethnographic research and creation project, Valérie Guimond takes a look at the post-sexual revolution era through the prism of the hypersexualization of girls’ bodies in contemporary advertising photography. The researcher is interested in the delicate experience of intersubjectivity, disconnects between image and identity, and the gap between what separates us from reality and what bonds us to it.

In collaboration with UQTR.

Thursday, March 12 • 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
The Alchemy of Ceramics

With Linda Swanson, artist and ceramics professor at Concordia University.

The materialities of ceramics have the intrinsic ability to change and transform themselves. Artist and professor Linda Swanson is interested in the ways in which we live with that transformation in relation to our own corporality and how we may see ourselves – individually and collectively – through matter. What she finds most intriguing in ceramic work is the capacity of these materials and processes to always reveal something beyond the bounds of the artist’s intention.

Studio to Museum: Work-box/Toolbox

With Monique Régimbald-Zeiber, artist, writer and associate professor at UQAM’s school of visual and media arts.

We don’t make art alone. This talk will be an opportunity to tell the story behind the making of some of the works on display in the exhibition Les ouvrages et les heures. The focus will be the question of the work that goes into art. It will be necessary to turn our attention to the privileged space that is the studio, where art is worked on, built, undone and redone in the course of time. All of this is influenced by materials, tools, happy accidents, the realities of the artist’s everyday life, the weight of events and the shadow of history.
