Les artistes en arts visuels. Portrait statistique des conditions de pratique au Québec 2010

Produced by the Observatoire de la culture et des communications du Québec of the Institut de la statistique du Québec in collaboration with organizations committed to the development of artistic occupations, this publication is devoted to professional visual artists. It combines the data and analyses required to determine the conditions of practice of that occupation in Québec.

The third in a series of surveys on artistic and communication occupations, this study presents, using the statistical data collected, various visual artist profiles. It also provides data on the artistic disciplines characterizing their practise, the time they devote to creation, the income they derive from it, their personal income, and their social security benefits.

This monograph gives an overview of the visual artist profession in Québec and also makes it possible, thanks to the relevance of the subjects broached, to understand the reality and complexity of artistic creation in Québec.
