Portraits d’artistes : le Sentier de la Paix

Etienne Desrosiers

Canada | 2021 | 9 min
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts asked five artists to create a series of works to be displayed at the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace. Patrick Beaulieu (winner of the competition for integration of arts with architecture and the environment), Roberto Pellegrinuzzi, Martha Townsend, Yannick Pouliot, and Patrick Coutu each created an artwork that now adorns and embodies the Pavilion. Although they are different from each other, all of these artworks reflect living together and, in their own way, the ties that bind us. In this short film by Etienne Desrosiers, the artists explain their vision and the conception of their creations.
