Andy Warhol - Art and the brand image
June 28 to October 13, 2014
Paul Maréchal Collection

Read More

Andy Warhol is an iconic figure of American Pop Art and he is famous for his paintings of objects of everyday life (the Campbell’s soup can) and of celebrities (Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley).  The Pop Art movement, which finds its principal inspiration in popular culture, has allowed many artists to explore a variety of graphic approaches.

 

The Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul presents a global first: a group of about 40 original artworks commissioned to and created by Warhol between 1964 and 1987 (the year of his death). The works were designed to promote a product, an event or a cause and use no more than three colours. Some were even produced in partnership with Yoko Ono and Keith Haring, among others.  This exhibition of posters displaying a variety of themes and graphic approaches is sure to please all visitors.

Sharp Dialogs - Great Collector's Treasures
June 28 to October 13, 2014
Martin Labrie

During the summer of 2014, the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul will offer an exciting journey among the works of some 20 proponents of Québec’s modern pictorial and sculptural art during the years 1950 through 2000.

Some artists chose total abstraction while others preserved traces of figuration.  All of them, however explored the relationships between the line and colour, the content and the form, the concrete surface and the hidden meaning, and they devised an amazing variety of artistic solutions.  This exhibition of great collectors’ favourites welcomes the visitor to a discovery of paintings and sculptures which represented a new aesthetic approach and a bold formal dialogue.  Each in their own way, these artists questioned what art is and who we are.

Jean Paul Riopelle - Alfred Pellan - Fernand Toupin - Marcelle Ferron - Rita Letendre - Jacques Hurtubise - Louis Belzile - Guy Montpetit - Jacques de Tonnancour -  Serge Lemoyne - René Derouin - Armand Vaillancourt - Claude Tousignant - Jean McEwen - Yves Trudeau - Jim Ritchie - Kieff Antonio Grediaga - et plusieurs autres...

The horizons of Raymond Brousseau
June 28 to October 13, 2014
Johanne Vigneault

Read More

Raymond Brousseau was at once the founder of and the collector for our country’s first private Inuit art museum.  He was also a painter who found inspiration in elements of nature and whose works shatter the boundaries of atmospheric abstractions.  His dual role as gallery manager and collector kept him away from the career of visual artist that he had launched in the 1960s.  After a trip to Asia which he undertook when he was in his 70s, Raymond Brousseau again felt the urge to create.  The 12 works included in this exhibition are reflections of the luminosity of the hours, the seasons and the places of a lifetime.
