Exhibition catalogue abundantly illustrated with the artist’s works, in color.


In order to seize the magnitude and the complexity of Marc Garneau’s work since the beginning of his career in the 1980s, Les Éditions de Mévius propose a publication that stands halfway between the exhibition catalogue and the monograph. Laurier Lacroix’s and Ginette Michaud’s essays complete the abundantly illustrated book by analyzing “a body of work that has developed through perseverance, self-loyalty, and rigour, but also through bifurcations, new starts, and trial and error over the past thirty years […]”. It marks the first time that Garneau’s work has been analyzed in its entirety in an extensive and dedicated publication.

About the artist

Born in Thetford Mines, Garneau studied Visual Arts at Concordia (B.A., 1979 ; M.F.A, 1984). He has received grants from the Canada Council and the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec. In 1997, he was awarded first prize at the Biennale du dessin, de l’estampe et du papier-matière du Québec. Over the past thirdy years, Garneau has had more than fifty solo exhibitions both nationally and in Europe. Garneau’s work is represented in the collections of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Musée d’art de Joliette, the Musée d’art de Saint-Laurent, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Banque d’œuvres d’art du Québec. Sought out by corporate collectors, it is also included in many private collections in North America and Europe.
