Quebecor is proud to present the work of internationally renowned Québec painter Louis Boudreault to a wide audience. The Voix d’ailleurs exhibit, part 2 of a major 3‑part show dedicated to Boudreault’s work, will be held from February 2 to April 17, 2015 at the Quebecor gallery located in the Corporation’s head office building on Saint-Jacques St. in Montréal. The exhibition is open to all.
We are honoured to hang canvasses by a Québec artist of such stature in the lobby of our head office. The Voix d’ailleurs exhibition provides a unique opportunity to admire the artistry of painter who shows his work around the world, an opportunity none of us should miss. The Quebecor gallery is proud to showcase talented Québec artists. Spreading our culture is a mission to which Quebecor is deeply committed. I wish all visitors an enriching and pleasurable experience!
Following up on the Voix d’ici exhibit, which featured 22 portraits of eminent Quebecers, Voix d’ailleurs consists of 22 portraits of world-famous personalities who inspired Boudreault’s art and left their mark on modern culture. The subjects of the large-scale paintings include celebrated painters such as Pablo Picasso, Vassily Kandinsky and Andy Warhol, great 20th century vocalists such as Luciano Pavarotti and Maria Callas, and icons such as James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley.Most of the 22 canvasses come from a series called Destinées which has been shown in Paris, London, New York and Hong Kong. Voix d’ailleurs was assembled for the Quebecor gallery by curator Esteban Dravet.
Louis Boudreault’s evocative portraits show these personalities as children or teens.From his art, there emanates a poetry, a fragility and sometimes a gravity that foreshadows the extraordinary life paths of these towering figures.
