History

The Conseil québécois de l’estampe (CQE) was established in 1978 under the name of Conseil de la gravure du Québec. It contributes to the visibility of emerging printmaking artists by organizing exhibitions and facilitating networking among artists and partner organizations through meetings and events. The CQE aims to improve the conditions of artists and raise awareness of their practices through publications like Code d’éthique de l’estame originale first published in 1983. In 1988, the CQE created the Prix Albert-Dumouchel to award new printmaking artists and in 2002, it created the Mois de l’estampe, later renamed as Mois de l’art imprimé. The name of the organization was changed from Conseil de la gravure du Quebec to Conseil québécois de l’estampe in 1983. In 2005, the CQE became Arprim (Regroupement pour la promotion de l’art imprimé) as a response to the new needs in the printmaking art scene.
