Art Souterrain is pleased to announce that its summer Vitrine sur l’Art event is returning to downtown Montréal for its 3rd edition, from June 16 to September 16, 2018.
All throughout the summer, the storefront windows of vacant spaces will showcase major works of contemporary art. The event will cover over 1.5 km, within the quadrilateral between Bleury, Sainte-Catherine Ouest, Mackay and Sherbrooke Ouest. In addition to promoting Canadian art and making it known to a larger public, this initiative also serves to anchor the visual arts in the daily lives of citizens, through the creation of a free original artistic circuit in public spaces.
Storefronts dedicated to showing contemporary art become unconventional exhibition spaces, featuring major artwork from visual art galleries, private collections and original artist projects. In addition to showcasing Canadian art and making it more widely known to the public, this initiative also enables the enhancement of empty commercial spaces, and thereby participates in the revitalization of a Montréal neighbourhood.
Thanks to our committed partners
The Vitrine sur l’Art project receives support from the Conseil des arts de Montréal, Secrétariat à la région métropolitaine, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Canada Council for the Arts.
