Craig Welch : Sous l'éclipse
Craig Welch: Beneath the Eclipse

A tribute to the Canadian filmmaker who passed away in 2020, the exhibition Craig Welch : Beneath the eclipse focuses on the artist's oil paintings — a pictorial production that he developed alongside his practice in animation. Some of the landscapes and animal portraits recall the world of his film Welcome to Kentucky (2004), while others simply bear witness to the passage of time under the light of a late day or early night.
