«Backstreet Girl (Women Graffiti Artists)» Guest Artist Lecture by Marianne Pon-Layus

Free, everyone is welcome!
Presented in partnership with La Maison des artistes visuels

This talk will explore street art created by Montreal-based female artists, such as Starchild Stela, MissMe, Raf Urban, Final Girl and Zola. These women go outside at night to glue unapologetic female figures in back alleys, train yards and other unsafe places. In doing so, they create ambiguous situations that challenge social norms, subvert stereotypes and change the meaning of popular culture, including internet memes, comics and advertisements.
— Starchild Stela, MissMe, Raf Urban, Final Girl et Zola forment un groupe d’artistes de la relève ayant acquis un certain renom dans le milieu de l’art urbain à Montréal. Elles sortent la nuit pour tapisser les murs de figures féminines impénitentes, que ce soit dans les ruelles, les triages ferroviaires, ou d’autres lieux sombres de la ville. Le collectif crée des situations qui mettent en doute les normes sociales et jouent avec les codes de la culture populaire: mèmes, bédés et publicités. Lors de cette conférence, Pon-Layus présentera et discutera d’un art urbain créé par les femmes qui perturbent les stéréotypes de genre.

Notez que la présentation se déroule en anglais.

— Marianne Pon-Layus lives in Montreal, where she draws and paints. Her work explores the influence of power relations and stereotypes on the construction of identity. In 2012, Pon-Layus received her Master of Fine Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal’s School of Visual Arts and Media, where she previously won the Professor's Fund scholarship. She has exhibited at Art Mûr (2012), the B-312 Gallery (2013) and the Outremont Art Gallery (2014), and her works will be seen in Quebec, Sweden and Belgium, where she participated in artist residencies in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, she became active in the graffiti scene.
