The exhibition Énigmes de l'ombre et la lumière, featuring works by artists Caroline Cloutier and Martin Désilets, was created by Commissioner Francine Paul. An art historian, Francine Paul is the artistic director of the art magazine Le Sabord since 2015. She was curator of the art collection of the National Bank of Canada, a lecturer at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières and a project manager for the Quebec government’s public art program. She has also chaired and served as a member on numerous juries including the jury for the Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas. Since obtaining a master’s degree and doctoral studies in art history, she has focused her research primarily on art practices that reconfigure the codes of landscape art and the conventions of abstraction.
