Legs Madeleine Poliseno-Pelland Bequest
Fondation du Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec

Alfred Pellan’s Polychromées drawings were presented at the tribute event Voir Pellan, organized in 1969 at the Musée d’art contemporain for the premiere of a documentary film on the artist. The event took the form of a “happening” with a costumed public and multicoloured slides projected onto dancers dressed in white against black surroundings. This series of prints is inspired by drawings executed during this event.

Les dessins des Polychromées ont été présentés lors de l’événement-hommage Voir Pellan, organisé en 1969 au Musée d’art contemporain pour la première d’un film documentaire sur l’artiste. La soirée prendra la forme d’un happening avec un public costumé et des projections de diapositives polychromées sur des danseurs vêtus de blanc dans un environnement noir. Les estampes de cette série s’inspirent de dessins réalisés dans ce contexte.

We thank Eve-Lyne Beaudry and Marie-Hélène Métivier for the contributing the original French essay.
