Profile

VU is an artist-run centre devoted to the promotion and development of contemporary photography. Each year the centre presents a dozen solo shows of artists from Quebec, the rest of Canada and abroad. VU has organized numerous special events for the dissemination of photography and toured its exhibitions abroad, including Mirabile Visu (1989), Le Réel et ses simulacres (1991-95), Trois fois Trois Paysages (1997-99), Le Vertige de l’évidence (2001), La Disparition (2002-04) and Habiter (2006). The centre supports emerging practices and presents programs which give a major place to young artists, enquire into new image technologies and are representative of the most innovative practices in contemporary photography. VU is a member of the Méduse cooperative, a group of ten visual arts, media and multidisciplinary organizations. Laboratories: VU offers artists in every discipline privileged access to a vast range of production equipment and professional services in silver print and digital photography (production studio, individual darkrooms, colour processor, computer stations and a large-format ink jet printer). This equipment, which is unique in Quebec and facilitated by highly qualified technicians, makes up a space of artistic enquiry and exchange in the service of artistic creation. Each year, the centre welcomes several artists in residence in order to encourage the creation of uncommon work in a setting conducive to experimentation. Publications: VU contributes to the development of critical thinking about the principal issues in photography and contemporary art. VU and Les Éditions J’ai VU have published some thirty books on photographic art as well as more than 150 brochures accompanying artists’ exhibitions at the centre. Founded in 1999, Les Éditions J’ai VU has developed three series of publications, Livres d’artistes, L’image amie and L’opposite, which bring photography, literary creation and multidisciplinary perspectives into dialogue with one another.
