François Lemieux

Since 2006, François Lemieux’s artistic approach depends upon his narration or commentary of the economy, and its relationship to the material object, the conditions of its production, the context of its display, and eventual reception.


François Lemieux received his Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Concordia University, followed by a Master’s degree in Visual Arts at Université du Québec à Montréal. He is also the founder of WE LEFT THE WARM STABLE AND ENTERED THE LATEX VOID (WLTWSAETLV). Lemieux lives and works in Montreal.
