Graziella is an artist of Italian origin, who studied art, fashion and economics in Milan. She has been living in Montreal since 1967. Graziella experimented with different techniques (pencil, charcoal, acrylic, oil) to finally focus on painting on silk. Mastering this material, which is strong and supple at the same time, becomes for her a metaphor of life and the creative process.

Librairie Drawn & Quarterly Graphic Novel Book Club #4: This One Summer

Start Date: Wed 09 Jul, 2014
End Date: Wed 09 Jul, 2014

Artistic Events

7-9 p.m. at the Librairie Drawn & Quarterly, 211 Bernard ouest


Join us at the store to discuss Mariko and Jillian Tamaki’s newest collaborative work! Published in May and already receiving acclaim, This One Summer is a beautiful, intelligent coming of age story focused on a preteen girl old enough to witness the angst surrounding her, but not quite old enough to be invited in. Mariko Tamaki's slow burning tension and unromantic nostalgia is perfectly matched by Jillian Tamaki's purple ink washes and character-focused illustrations.

Hosted by store staffer Marcela Huerta. Refreshments will be provided and discussion will be lively! Come one, come all! The event is free and there is a 20% discount on This One Summer starting now!

infringement festival

Start Date: Wed 18 Jun, 2014
End Date: Sun 22 Jun, 2014

Artistic Events

The Montreal infringement festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary! Running from June 18 – 22, the Montreal infringement festival offers a variety of performances and cultural resistance: activist musicians, radical performances, metro-busking, burlesque, film screenings, marginalized arts, spoken-word, culture-jamming, a 10th anniversary feast, infringement open mic, and more!

Celebrating Freedom of Expression, activist performances and a broad range of eclectic, independent, and controversial art of all forms, the infringement festival is modelled on the original 1947 Edinburgh Fringe, which was a DIY (do-it-yourself) artistic protest against corporate elitism and exclusion of local artists. Created in Montreal in 2004 after artists were kicked out of the Saint-Ambroise Fringe Festival™, the infringement festival now exists in Brooklyn, Buffalo, Hamilton and Montreal.

At the infringement festival, artists and audiences of all backgrounds are invited to reclaim culture by creating a charged environment where people come together to take chances, push boundaries, explore uncharted territory, and to do so without corporate interference or having to pay any fees. Authentic and underground, the infringement festival welcomes you experience the arts without the corporate interference!
