Julie Favreau


Presentation of the artwork
Moments is integrated into two contiguous walls in the vestibule of Centre Jean-Marie-Gauvreau at the entrance to the cultural centre. It is a photographic mosaic of ten images the subjects of which are inspired by the borough and the people who live and work there. A hand in different positions is a central element that is recurrent in Favreau’s work. The portraits, signs, gestures, sculptures, landscapes, and textures portrayed in the work illustrate the different movements, art disciplines, and cultural traditions that exist in the Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension borough. By reflecting the intermingling of cultures, Moments is an expression of the coexistence of cultural heritages and represents Montréal as a city of mixed origins.
Associated events
Moments was produced through a Québec competition by invitation held in 2014. The project was part of the renovation of Maison de la culture Claude-Léveillée, completed in December 2017.
Julie Favreau
Julie Favreau’s practice, located at the crossroads of visual art and choreography, is based on inventing gestures out of objects (sculptures) or, conversely, on inventing sculptures out of gestures. Her projects take on different forms, such as installation, video, sculpture, performance, and photography.

Recent works induce a state of heightened sensory awareness in the viewer, inviting concentration, focus, and intimacy.

Favreau has presented/performed her work in many contexts including exhibitions, festivals and performances on stage. In 2011, she is part of the MACM Québec Triennial. Recent awards include: Pierre Ayot Prize - AGAC City of Montreal,The Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art and a nomination on the long list for the Sobey Art Award.

In residence for three years in one of the eight Montreal studios of the Darling Foundry, she is working on a new creative cycle that includes sculptural propositions, video and photographic works, and performance for stage and solo exhibitions for various sites: Gallery 44 (Toronto), Edinburgh art festival - Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Scotland), Battat Contemporary and Darling Foundry (Montreal).

She is currently represented by Battat Contemporary.
