Jasmin Bilodeau, Sébastien Giguère and Nicolas Laverdière founded the collective BGL in the mid-1990s while studying visual arts at Université Laval. Since then, their work has been shown at numerous group and solo exhibitions both in Canada and abroad. BGL has also participated in prestigious art events and in particular the Venice Biennale in 2015. Its works are collected among others by the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and the Musée d’art contemporain in Montreal. The collective is represented by the galleries Parisian Laundry (Montreal), Diaz Contemporary (Toronto) and Galerie 3 (Quebec City).
