Gabrielle Desgagné-Duclos holds a master’s degree in art history (Université de Montréal, 2015) for which her thesis subject was the aesthetic dispositif of the tableau vivant. When she publishes essays in contemporary art magazines, her interest leads her to write mainly about painting in the broad sense and about artists whose living practices draw on inter-iconicity or on reprise and remediation processes. Since 2016, she has been the programming coordinator for Verticale – centre d’artistes, where she is developing her sensitivity to displaying art in an atypical context. This guidance and implementation work enables her to observe the impact of the invisible on materialities. She envisages writing on art as a form of paying attention.
