Art Souterrain

Sara Graham, British Columbia

Have you heard of Montreal's underground city? Until March 17, it was transformed into a subterranean art gallery as part of our annual winter festival, Nuit Blanche.  This is the fifth annual edition of the free event.

I have to admit there are some corners of this labyrinth that I had never explored, so this event was a great excuse.

Seven kilometers long, it featured 120 projects and 30 activities, with information about each work of art available as a download to your phone.

Most of the art was in the video or installation format, in keeping with the group's objective of introducing the "latest artistic practices" to the public.

For more information, have a look at their website. Next year's theme: Roots.

"Golden Glow", Keith Lemley, Pennsylvania
"Memory in Process", Yu-Hang Huang, Taiwan & Canada
