In the wake of the redefinition of Quebec identity brought about by the Quiet Revolution, art in Québec went through unprecedented upheavals, whose range of repercussions this retrospective look will enable us to grasp. Work by well-known artists, major events and artistic movements will thus be put in perspective in a unique presentation employing astonishing associations.

Complemented by historical information and contextual references, this innovative panorama of the history of contemporary art will reveal the mutual influences and shared sensibilities that have animated artists and the great currents of contemporary art.
