Balayage : un regard sur la vidéo

[In French] Comme son titre l’indique, le dossier propose un balayage sur les différentes approches de la vidéo. Il nous importait dans ces pages de faire un retour en arrière pour souligner le travail des artistes et des organismes qui, au Québec et ailleurs, ont œuvré sans relâche pour donner à la vidéo la place qu’elle occupe aujourd’hui.



Current Issue


As the basis for social organization and the primary site of socialization, the family has drawn particular attention in the visual arts since the inception of art history. As contemporary art seems well engaged in an examination of cultural practices, the family, in all its forms, is returning to the spotlight. Many artists today revisit family traditions, sites, and taboos, challenge what has been held as unspeakable by digging into archives, and invent new, intimate forms of sociability out of biographical experiences. This issue reflects on family histories as they are rewritten in contemporary art.
