During the 2012 edition of Journées de la Culture, Atelier Graff invites the public to participate in Circulation, a project featuring print-based artistic interventions located both inside the printmaking studio and within its Plateau neighbourhood.
Conceived and curated by two members of Atelier Graff, Andréanne Bouchard and Geneviève Turcotte, Circulation is a project that aims to create a synergetic exchange between Atelier Graff, the surrounding Montreal community and the practice of five contemporary print artists: Andréanne Bouchard, Guillaume Brisson-Darveau & Pascaline Knight, Anna McIntyre and Geneviève Turcotte.
