Main d'œuvre in the context of the "Printemps du Québec à Paris" event Quartier Éphémère invites five artists in residence followed by an exhibition in its Parisian sister organization, Usine Éphémère. A stay of six weeks allowed these young artists to be immersed in a professional artistic life overseas.
