Library Exhibitions

Exhibitions presented within the three Bibliothèque de Québec networks

Nous courions vite et les égratignures sur nos jambes étaient belles
Guest curator – Jeanne Couture

Inspired by the theme of Manif d’art 8, this group exhibition brings together the works of four Quebec artists, who explore such topics as extended childhood, the poetry of everyday life, daily catastrophes, and the body as a territory at once fanciful and obscene.

For each of these artistic proposals, the curator has paired a work of poetry, history or literature, shedding new light on the works presented.


March 4 to 29
Opening – March 4, 3 p.m.


Manif d’art would like to thank Première Ovation.

Émilie Proulx (Quebec city, Canada)


Loriane Thibodeau (Quebec city, Canada)



Émilie Proulx and Loriane Thibodeau transport us to a world in which intimist pieces and large-scale contemplative works exist side-by-side. Émilie Proulx presents embroidered landscapes superimposing stories in a succession of repetitive movements. Loriane Thibodeau proposes a series of ceramic sculptures embodying both childhood and disillusionment. These humanist works approach our relationship to the body in terms of complementarity and the responses to the dialogues they create.


Loriane Thibodeau would like to thank the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

Annie Baillargeon (Quebec city, Canada)



Annie Baillargeon is presenting a retrospective of a dozen works created between 2004 and 2016, which revolve around rituals, mysticism and the figure of the sorceress.


On March 14 at 5:30 p.m., the curator will lead a discussion with Annie Baillargeon and her photographer, Étienne Boucher, on such notions as the artistic gesture in creation, intimacy and our relationship with the body.
