Video screening Thursday, February 10, 7pm 
 

“I Am Your Biggest Fan”is a compilation of short length videos by American artists from Texas, New York, Louisiana and California, curated by artist Julie Lequin. 
 

The selected works tell compelling narratives in an intricate, sexy and clever way. The videos made between 1991 and now are influenced from pop culture, performance art and storytelling. While some videos are more musical (Anne McGuire, Catherine Ross), others are derived from character playing (Lucas Michael, Nina Schwanse, Harry Dodge & Stanya Kahn), or from secret fantasies (Jennifer Sullivan, Kelly Sears).

While living in California, Julie was introduced to the work of these artists at school, houseparties and at screenings. Sometimes she became friends with them right away, but other times
she would spy on them at the school library or keep an eye on them via internet, being toointimidated to talk to them. This screening was Julie’s excuse to finally get in touch with all of
them. She is thrilled to be showing these inspiring and moving pieces in Montreal, for this oneevening screening at La Centrale.

Julie Lequin (born in Laval, Quebec in 1979) is a French Canadian artist. She received a BFA from Concordia University in 2001 and an MFA from Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, CA) in 2005. This multidisciplinary artist’s first book was published in 2007 by 2nd Cannons Publications (Los Angeles).  In 2009-10, she exhibited at the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CA), La Centrale (Montréal), White Columns and Horton & Liu gallery (NY). Julie was awarded a fellowship from the California Community Foundation and has done residencies at Yaddo (NY), Art Omi (NY), Macdowell Colony (NH) and Les Recollets (Paris, France). Julie is currently based in Quebec and her work can be found online at www.julielequin.com.
