Les Faussaires is a unique fundraising event where articule has invited twelve Canadian artist to forge a work generously donated by renown artist Claude Tousignant. Tousignant’s work and its forgeries will be on exhibit at articule from November 18th to 25th. Throughout the exhibition the authors of each work will remain anonymous. Who did what? Which one is the original? On November 26th, articule will host a gala event, with most of the artists present, to auction off all the works. Only after the auction will the authors of each work be revealed. The funds raised will contribute to articule’s 2011-2012 fundraising campaign to generate $20,000 to support artists in our programming activities.
articule gratefully thanks Claude Tousignant and all participating artists.
