THE GASPÉ–PICARDY FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie and Diaphane – Pôle photographique en Picardie share an eagerness to carry out truly substantive work in their respective territories aimed at raising awareness of photography and increasing its exposure.
The two events have pledged jointly to showcase artists’ work and the various artistic practices surrounding the photograph.
The Gaspé-Picardy collaboration for photography will result in artist residencies in 2015 and exhibits.
Thanks to a collaboration between Rencontres internationales de la photographie en Gaspésie and the Conseil Général de la Vendée in France, Québec photographer Maryse Goudreau, a native of the Gaspé, will carry out a research and creation residency with a focus on the Vendée landscape in the fall of 2015. During the same period, a photographer from Vendée will be welcomed in the Gaspé. The results of these two artistic research projects will be presented at the next edition of Rencontres, in 2016, and at the same time in Vendée.
THANK YOU TO THE HOST MUNICIPALITIES AND TO ALL OUR PARTNERS
