Alexis Langevin-Tétrault succeeds Gilles Artaud

Curator Alexis Langevin-Tétrault succeeds one of the pillars of Quebec's artistic life, artist Gilles Artaud.

“Since PHOS was founded in 2013 by Espaces F, Gilles Artaud has been involved as director or even as coordinator,” he says. Thanks to his hard work, some of Canada's greatest artists have presented their work there. I would not have accepted this challenge without trust in a dedicated and dedicated team. »
