Le tout et la partie
Michèle Lemieux, from drawing to animation
Curator: Angela Grauerholz, Professor at the UQAM School of Design
September 22 to November 6, 2016
Opening: Wednesday, September 21 at 6 pm
This exhibition will feature the work of Quebec illustrator and animator Michèle Lemieux, a professor at the UQAM School of Design. The exhibition will focus on her sketches for animated films that she created for the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) between 2003 and 2012.
In addition, while the artist is working on a new film, the public will have a unique opportunity to see her preliminary sketches and her visual experiments on a pinboard, an instrument invented in France by Alexander Alexeïeff and Claire Parker and owned by the NFB. A publication, pour ne pas interrompre le geste, will accompany the exhibition.
The exhibition is produced by the UQAM Centre de Design and presented in collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada and the Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée (France). It was made possible through the financial support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
