Art Talks MTL Monthly conversations with contemporary artists, dealers, collectors, critics and curators based in Montreal, Canada.

Long time collector Robert Poulin regularly exhibits work he owns at Espace Robert Poulin, in suite # 411 of the Belgo building. In 1995 he founded La Peau de l’Ours a group of art collectors dedicated mainly to buying large scale paintings by lesser known artists. Based on a similar venture in Paris at the turn of the century, which focused on modernist works and was eventually resold, this collection is destined to become a private foundation.

In this episode, he shares his views on the nature of collecting, and the hardships of any genuine artistic vocation.
