Introduction to contextual art and artistic collaboration
In collaboration with Action Centre-Ville
Alexandre Jimenez is the son of Augustin Jimenez, house painter, and Francine Jimenez (born Cerda), secretary. After failing his studies in Biology at Université de l’Île de la Réunion, he decided to undertake everything to have a more precarious status than that of his parents: artist. His works are not part of any public collections. Since arriving in Montréal in 2009, he has not received any awards, nor scholarships and he has not had a solo exhibition in an established venue.

The artist: Alexandre Jimenez
His medium: contextual art and artistic collaboration
The artist and curator Alexandre Jimenez invites you to reconsider the status of the artist and the notion of author by putting forward the artistic posture privileging artist collectives. You will discover his artistic practice, as well as that of the four collaborators (Marianne Pon-Layus, Natalie Laforturne, Ivan Lassere et Vincent Routhier), and will get involved in a fun, inclusive and enriching artistic experience! You will have an exceptional opportunity to learn what goes on "behind the scenes" of an artistic creation, together!
The participant artists wish to thank the Guilde des artistes.
