Art Souterrain



Here we are, already at the 8th edition of this unique festival which challenges the standards of visual art exhibition. Our main goal is to meet the people who walk among the many pathways of Montreal’s eminent underground city. Our intention is not to please, but to create reactions, to challenge, to move and to think.

The 76 art projects presented demonstrate today’s current artistic diversity. Contemporary art shakes us because it is a mirror of our society, sometimes reflecting its most confusing aspects. Two quebecois commissioners, Marie-Josée Rousseau and Anaïs Castro, brought their unique views to complement our programming with discernment. For the first time this year, we present works from three major collections: Loto Québec, Art Bank of Canada Council for the Arts and Arsenal.

We also work with 10 cultural locations in Montreal presenting exhibitions linked to our theme «Must art be appealing?». Enjoy your visit !

We look forward to meeting you!
