This important group exhibition entitled Salvifique features many works from the MAJ’s collection that have not been shown to date, including the recently acquired work of Jean-Paul Jérôme :
Celebrating the reception of art at the MAJ around the object and its material qualities, Salvifique highlights one of the important, but unfinished, catch-ups the MAJ has made over the past ten years. It corrects the notorious gender imbalance that has been a driving force behind the MAJ’s most recent collections policy.
The Salvifique exhibition consists of works from the Musée d’art de Joliette’s collection acquired over the past ten years by the artists: Pierre Ayot, Jérôme Bouchard, William Brymner, Cozic, Rodolphe Duguay, Marcelle Ferron, Louise Gadbois, Mathieu Grenier, Betty Goodwin, John Heward, Brother Jérôme, Jean-Paul Jérôme, Lucie Laporte, Renée Lavaillante, Lisette Lemieux, Richard Mill, Roberto Pellegrinuzzi, Rita Letendre, Yannick Pouliot, Louise Robert, Michael A. Robinson, Robert Roussil, Sylvia Safdie, Eugenie Shinkle, Alan Sonfist, Françoise Sullivan, Barbara Steinman, Mariette Vermette.
The exhibition, curated by Julie Alary Lavallée, was held from June 19 to September 6, 2021.
