Art is everywhere! Especially in a city like Montreal. It is part of the fabric here. Architecture. Sculpture. Installations. Examples of it all are scattered throughout our fine city. Sometimes in the least expected places.
Vitrine sur L’art is exactly this. Presented by Art Souterrain, Vitrine sur L’art features works of art by Quebec artists displayed in the windows of unoccupied properties throughout the downtown area.
It is happening throughout the summer. Here are a list of special events occuring in conjunction with Vitrine sur L’art:
- Title: “Weekend Mediation”
28/29 September 2019
Location: On the sidewalk facing the windows in which we have displayed the different works.
Hours: 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Every Saturday and Sunday during the exhibition period, visitors can be guided by our information guides posted near the windows. These guides will be responsible for helping those who visit the exhibition while informing them of the different options that the city of Montreal offers.
2) Title: Curator’s Focus
Date: Sunday, September 29, 2019
Place: A walk along the route of the windows involved in the exhibition.

3) Title: VIP Night “Real Estate and Other Partners”
Location: Delta Hotel
Time: 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
As part of the showcase on art, we want to offer evenings with thematic 5 a 7s between the artists, real estate and project partners. These meetings are moments where people from the business community will be able to exchange and meet the artists and the curator of this edition of the exhibition.
