Artexte engages in research, interpretation, and dissemination initiatives in order to broaden the influence and appreciation of contemporary visual arts. These activities are informed by its significant collection of art documentation and authoritative resources, as well as a network of multidisciplinary partners. Artexte partnerships and alliances are built with others who also seek to bring attention to the value of documentation produced by the study and practice of contemporary visual arts. Artexte affirms its interest in the experimental, innovative and critical components of this field. Our activities touch on all aspects of contemporary visual arts from 1965 to today, with special emphasis placed on Québec and Canada.
