Jean-Claude Poitras exhibit opens in Quebec City

Published
Jun 20, 2019

Quebec fashion designer, Jean-Claude Poitras, is taking center stage this summer in a new museum exhibition. 

Inside the Jean-Claude Poitras: Fashion and Inspiration exhibition at the Musée de la civilisation. - François Ozan

 
Opening on Thursday at the Musée de la Civilisation in Quebec City, the exhibition dubbed 'Jean-Claude Poitras: Fashion and Inspiration' will be devoted entirely to the creative work and inspiration of the iconic Canadian designer. 
 
The exhibition, jointly produced by the Musée de la Civilisation and the McCord Museum, presents nearly 160 objects and archival documents including 60 of his most beautiful designs chosen from the two museums' collections and from Jean-Claude Poitras's personal collection. 

"In this exhibition, you will see that fashion has not only been my profession, but my lifeblood,” said Poitras, in a news statement.  
 
“Throughout my journey, I've had the good fortune of being nurtured and guided by my muses and little hands, the people behind the scenes and those of the spotlight, from the wings to the podiums, off the beaten track. Today, I remember that, beneath the surface, our intersecting visions and shared dreams have woven a beautiful story that continues to unfold."
 
The exhibition was organized around three of the designer's biggest sources of inspiration: family and religion, muses and film, and travel. The first part of the exhibition explores designs inspired by Poitras's memories of childhood, the church and Catholic rituals, and youth. The second highlights the influence the cinema had on Jean-Claude Poitras's work, but also that of public figures and his true muse, Colette Chicoine, while the last part is dedicated to the designer's travels, with pieces inspired by the cultures and traditions of the world's great cities.
 
Poitras has been praised for having helped shape the Quebec fashion scene with his distinctive brand and intuitive, sensitive approach.
 
Through his career, which has spanned more than four decades (1970s to 2000s), he created numerous successful brands, including Parenthèse, BOF!, Jean-Claude Poitras, and Qui M'aime Me Suive.
 
The exhibition will run at the Musée de la Civilisation until September 15, 2019. It will then move to the McCord Museum in Montreal from October 24, 2019, to April 26, 2020.
