Duo Couturier/Lafargue

One Week Art Residency, Multi-media Exihibition and Artist Talk

Canadian multi-media artists Louis Couturier and Jacky Georges Lafargue visited the University of Rochester February 24 to 28, to participate in an art residency at the new Ronald Rettner Hall for Media Arts and Innovation and the Sage Art Center.

During the week, the artists conducted informal workshops with students and work on the printing and editing of their most recent projects. The residency culminated with an artist talk and multi-media installation created specifically for Rettner Hall, designed as a hub for the arts, sciences and engineering on the University's River Campus.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Art History and the Humanities Project, this work is be the first artwork displayed inside Rettner Hall.
