Reproduction de l’image: Quand l’imprimé crée de nouveaux contextes

Panel discussion

Grand Quay, Port of Montreal
200 de la Commune Street West

April 27, 2019 - 2:00 pm


Once in print, the photographic image—whose purpose is to document the artwork—can also create new dissemination contexts for it, increasing its visibility and impact. What role does documentation play in legitimizing the artwork, and what is its influence on art history? How do professional photographers and the public contribute to contexts such as the auctioning of artworks and transient or public art practices?

Moderated by: Daniel Fiset, educator, and Victoria Carrasco, Head Gallery Management and Event Coordination, Fondation Phi pour l’art contemporain

Hélène Brousseau, librairian at Artexte

Karla McManus, art historian
Richard-Max Tremblay, artist

Please note that the event will be in French. Limited number of seats: first come, first seated.
