Le Parterre du Quartier des spectacles

Free

Box Office: None, free access

Taking place in several downtown locations from August 20 to September 5, this year's show is of an unprecedented scope. Indeed, the exhibition will be enriched by a selection of digital art installations presented as part of the special Digital Detox project, supported by the City of Montréal and the Canada Council for the Arts. The theme of digital detoxification will be explored in a critical way and from different angles through the multiple artworks that make up the program. In total, 27 interactive, audiovisual, mixed reality, virtual and augmented reality digital works by local and international artists will be presented in both outdoor and indoor settings.

Outside, ephemeral works and installations will unfold in the Quartier des spectacles. Anna Eyler and Nicolas Lapointe will circulate with the work D.o.t.t.d., taking on the appearance of a hot dog cart, while artist Maxime Damecour will perform an improvised ambulatory mapping intervention using his free software Freeliner and the mobile projection device map_mov. Finally, the sound installation Ecological Ambisonic Recordings by James Benjamin will offer a soothing immersion in the heart of the rainforest in the Quartier des spectacles.
