The London public had a chance to discover the Infinite City exhibition at Vyner Street Gallery in London June 7 to 12, 2012, including a watercolour by multidisciplinary Québec artist Hélène Lord, who was in residence at the Québec Studio in London. Composed of a series of small scenes, the mosaic shows the places visited by the artist during her six-month stay in the English capital.

Québec studio in London

Hélène Lord stayed in the Québec studio for six months. This space is made possible by funding from:

  • Ministère des Relations internationales
  • Conseil des Arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ)
  • Ministère de la Culture, des Communications et de la Condition féminine.

Hélène Lord also received support from the Cultural Service of the Québec Government Office in London.
