L’espace du livre : l’édition comme finalité

Rencontres and Pratiques et Usages de l’Image (Nantes, France) are partnering for the presentation of 12 videos featuring the work of French and Québec artists by way of photographic books. Those videos will be released in advance of the 2nd edition of “L’espace du livre” (The Book Space), an exhibit, exchange and get-together project devoted to the photobook that will be held in the winter of 2021 in Nantes and in Montreal on the theme of “L’édition comme finalité” (The Publication as Objective).

The selection of Québec works was carried out by curator Serge Allaire, while French books were chosen by Pratiques et Usages de l’Image. As was the case for “Snapshots,” Rencontres entrusted production of the videos to Émilie Beaulieu-Guérette.

Visit the artists’ website to find out how you can purchase the books presented in the videos.

This initiative was set up thanks to the support of the Fonds franco-québécois pour la coopération décentralisée.
