375Mtl – Illuminart part of Montréal en Lumière
The massive Illuminart project is a program of technological works launched as part of Montréal en Lumière and the festivities of the 375th anniversary of Montreal. A new, free event that testifies to Montreal’s status as a “Smart and Digital City”, Illuminart establishes itself as an annual international crossroads for illuminated, interactive and immersive avant-garde creativity. This program of many installations located in the Quartier des spectacles and elsewhere in the Ville-Marie arrondissement, confirms the status of Montréal en Lumière as a laboratory and showcase of creativity, part of an international circuit of events dedicated to the theme of light.
Until March 11th, 2017 – Wednesday to Saturday – Place des Festivals
For over 15 years, Montréal en Lumière (MEL) has invested its energies in creating immersive interactive activities focused on light. MEL introduced the first giant projections and video mapping effects on Montreal buildings, as well as events integrating new technologies with onstage performances. Illuminart is aligned with the extraordinary growth of MEL, which aims to support the development of new disciplines.
The Quartier des spectacles is bordered by Saint-Hubert, City Councillors and Sherbrooke streets, and René-Lévesque Boulevard. Within this area, you will find 3 metro stations, 10 bus lines, 9 BIXI stations and 7 indoor parking lots.
