Catalog of an exhibition of work by members of "Le Collectif des Editions Intervention". The exhibition was conceived and realized by Pierre-Andre Arcand, a member of the collective, who also supervised the catalog. It was shown in Paris from April 2nd to 27th 1985.
Les Editions Intervention, based in Quebec City, Canada, aims to bring together artists, poets and other creative individuals in order to produce more diversified forms of work. Richard Martel writes for the Collective: "Nous cherchons simplement des alternatives, nous nageons dans l'indefinissable et l'indescriptible. C'est notre engagement politique envers l'art". [We simply search for alternatives, we swim amidst the indefinable and the indescribable. That's our politcal commitment in regard to art].
The artists included are Patrick Altman, Mona Desgagne, Guy Durand, Robert Gelinas, Pierre Monat, Jean-Claude St.-Hilaire and others.
