Vidéographe announces the departure of its General Director
Videographe announces today that Julie Tremble, General Director, is stepping down after 6 years of passionate commitment to research and development of experimental forms of moving images in Quebec.
During her tenure as General Director, Julie Tremble left an important mark for Vidéographe and for the artists we support. Firstly, she refocused the organization’s mission around the experimental practices of moving images, which helped to redefine Vidéographe’s place in the national ecosystem of media arts. Her major efforts to showcase the Vidéographe collection, which includes 2,300 works and the reconstruction of Vithèque in 2017, had a major impact on the dissemination and influence of video artists. In recent years, Julie Tremble has worked on setting up creation programs for d/Deaf people and has also promoted a better representation of marginalized communities both in the collection of works and within the various activities of Vidéographe. Julie Tremble has also designed a major immobilization project, which will have a significant impact on the creation and influence of video nationally and internationally. She leaves behind an organization that is alive, dynamic, and relevant to its community.
“I am very grateful for these years spent at Vidéographe. I would like to warmly thank my colleagues, the Board of Directors and the members for their continued commitment, their generosity, and their stimulating ideas. It is thanks to this fire that we have been able to develop and achieve a common vision together. I also thank the artists and collaborators who placed their trust in us, it was a real pleasure to work with you. Vidéographe is driven by a creative and welcoming community to which I am proud to belong. Long live Vidéographe! “
– Julie Tremble
Philippe Hamelin, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Vidéographe, wishes to commend the fabulous work of the General Director since her arrival: “The colossal work accomplished by Julie Tremble during her tenure at Vidéographe stands out for her rigor, quality of work, and creativity in developing new ways of doing and imagining what an artist center can be, but above all for her unifying approach and collegiality. We thank you for everything and wish you lots of fun in creation.”
