Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, this production brings together more than one hundred previously unpublished photographs by major artists on the Canadian contemporary scene, as well as a citizen's section featuring fifty images sent from Canada and France. In parallel to this virtual component, Image Sent was held in the gallery of the Canadian Cultural Centre from September 17 to October 16, 2020.
Created during the lockdown, this exhibition was elaborated from requests made to artists to send three images representing a current and personal vision of their world, a symbolic project specifically designed for France and consciously addressed to the French. Mostly comprising photographs made with the technology and in the spirit of the smartphone, Image... Sent also underlines the Canada-France relationship through the reciprocity of the citizens’panel.
