The works of thirty-two artists are assembled to highlight the 50th anniversary of Paul-Émile Borduas’s first solo exhibition. François-Marc Gagnon documents the specific context to this foundational event for automatism, as Fernande Saint-Martin looks back on the conflict between figurative and abstract art in contemporary art history in Québec. Gilles Daigneault writes about different manifestations of painting in Montréal during the 1980s.
