The Art of Joy
Explore the notion of joy. Not in pure illustrations of the concept, but rather in the expression of its multiple facets. What will result is a tension between joy and its opposite, between its radiant side and its reverse, darker side?
On a Large Scale
To celebrate both the opening of the Pierre Lassonde pavilion and the vitality of the contemporary arts scene in Québec, this inaugural exhibition will pay tribute to one of the most influential and representative art practices: installation.
The exhibition surveys the work of the painter. His untiring exploration of his immediate surroundings – indoor scenes, female nudes, gardens and landscapes in Normandy and the Côte d’Azur – and his extraordinary feel for chromatic harmonies and light, show that all his life Bonnard worked to transform reality.
