Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme

Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme

The Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme (formerly called the Hall des Pas perdus) is a public space open to everyone. In it, there is a public square, an exhibition room and a digital screen mosaic. Some hundred free cultural activities are presented here each year, including dance and music shows, installations, talks, exhibitions and press conferences.

The space is named in honour of Québec’s first minister of cultural affairs (ministère des Affaires culturelles, 1961-1964), who initiated the creation of Place des Arts.

You can admire two major art works on display here: Comme si le la rue by Pierre Granche and L’artiste est celui qui fait voir l’autre côté des chose(An Artist Is One Who Shows the Other Side of Things) by Claude Bettinger.
