Produced by the Foreman Art Gallery of Bishop's University

The exhibition project “Motelization”— a wholly invented word to suggest the proliferation of motels —seeks to explore the motel phenomenon and all that it entails. The project attempts to tackle the architectural, historical, and sociological aspects of the conventional motel in an approach meant to be contextual. Being in close proximity to various motels, the Foreman Art Gallery serves as an ideal vantage point for that sort of experiment, both in the gallery space and in situ. In fact Lennoxville, as one of Sherbrooke’s many districts, holds a total of four motels all situated on Queen St. the town’s main road.

Andrée Anne Vien’s project can be viewed within the rooms of the Motel Lennoxville located at 94 Queen St. and the other available online at andreeannevien.com/Motelisation/notedemotel.html
