2008 Lecture

Raymonde April

Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art
952 Queen St W

Raymonde April’s early work in the 1980s was
revolutionary and she has contributed
significantly to the evolution of contemporary
photography, both in Quebec and Canada. She
creates personal narratives, combining
autobiography and documentary with everyday scenes
and theatrical settings, imbued with a sense of
poetic minimalism. April will speak about her
recent series Gravitas, which is based on
the restoration of the embossed walls in her
Montreal home. April teaches at Concordia
University in Montreal and was awarded the
Paul-Émile Borduas Prize in 2003. She was recently
nominated for the 2008 Grange Prize.

For details on April's exhibition,
Gravitas, at MOCCA see EXHIBITIONS.
