A documentary composed of excerpts from a meeting of artists which took place within the context of an exhibition - Québec 75 - at the Montreal Contemporary Art Museum. Testimonies construct a brief historic portrait of the gatherings of Quebec artists and their claims since the 1960's. Evidence of notorious artists and prominent interveners : Lemoyne, Cozic, Barbeau, Robillard, Molinari, Mihalcean, Lefebvre, Dumont, Charney, Thériault, etc... In fact, we review the occupation of the Fine Arts school by the students, the Declic operation in November 68 during the twentieth anniversary of the Refus Global manifest. This document permits us to see and to follow their interventions and speeches, which alternate and are sometimes confronted to stimulate the discussion and the reflection about the status of art and the artist in society.
