Exhibitions / Digital Works
In the day and evening, Place des Arts’ exhibition room showcases works relating to the performing arts and topics of current interest. Works by emerging visual and media artists are also regularly featured. A one-of-a-kind mosaic made up of 35 screens, located right by the exhibition room, also displays digital works of art, custom created by artists from here at home and abroad.
All year long, Place des Arts presents temporary exhibitions produced in collaboration with such partners as the McCord Museum, Les Impatients, the Just for Laughs Festival, and UQAM. The exhibitions either relate to the performing arts or explore current issues, while also acting as a major showcase for emerging visual and media artists.
Some of the many subjects that have been addressed include parenting (Papas / Swedish Dads by Johan Bävman), inclusion in the arts (Corps et Âmes by Mikaël Theimer), Montreal history (the EXPO 67 – PLACE AUX ARTS! exhibition), and dozens of others!
A mosaic made up of 35 digital screens and light tubes, the only device of its kind, is housed in the vast indoor public space at Place des Arts. It was created by multimedia designer Érick Villeneuve (Multimédia Novalux). Innovative, inspiring, and singular works, custom created for the mosaic, are presented all year long. The screen mosaic allows Place des Arts to showcase excellence in digital creativity, notably through a partnership with the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
