Serge Lemoyne (1941-1998) is said to have shaken up the Quebec art scene and to have contributed significantly to a fundamental rethinking of the language of visual arts in Quebec in the 1960s, one of the most effervescent periods in our art history.
A multidisciplinary artist before his time, instigator of the first happenings, he was also one of the first Quebec artists to adopt a practice that was more liberating than intellectual. Like the New York artists whose work he admired, he ventured into the world of pop and became interested in participatory art and collective creation.
It is with an unshakeable conviction that he will defend the accessibility of art for all,
a "mission" to which he will not cease to devote himself throughout his career.
In addition to his social commitment and the identity-related scope of his practice, a considerable part of his art is developed around the elements of his daily life.
