Dans l'art

En art, la locution « Work in Progress » est employée par un artiste qui désire présenter soit un projet, soit son œuvre pendant son exécution. En cinéma, un film peut aussi être projeté comme « Work in Progress », c'est-à-dire que son réalisateur estime que le montage du film est à améliorer ou n'est pas terminé.
