Labor Improbus: Work is a recurring issue in art history which, even today, questions and inspires artists from all walks of life. Through a wide and varied selection of Quebec, Canadian and international artists, this new edition aims to highlight a timeless subject, an inexhaustible source of inspiration, that contemporary artists like to question, denounce, caricature and... work on!
