Information on the activity

With contributions from recent-immigrant children and their parents, the MAPP_MTL festival, artists Charlotte Risch, whose background is French and Japanese, and Thaïla Khampo, of Cambodian heritage, present a monumental mapping creation. Un monde Multicolore, presented on the façade of the Grande Bibliothèque, celebrates diversity and harmonious difference. The project is supported by the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, Montreal.

Un monde Multicolore - Grande Bibliothèque

  • Every day from nightfall until 6:30 p.m.

“The project is a follow-up to the group work PAYSAGES FANTASTIQUES, first exhibited in 2019. The creative workshops were held this summer in Parc Laurier.”


Thaïla Khampo is an illustrator from Montreal. He likes patterns, mystery, beautiful stories, naive art, caustic humor, simplicity and images that tell stories.

Charlotte Risch is a French-Japanese VJ and visual artist. Influenced by her past as the guitarist of local metal and punk rock bands, Charlotte's visual prowess is always in balance with the musical experience. She mixes video techniques; found footage, 3d, custom designed colourful sequences, into collages that stimulate not only the eyes, but brings forth memories of places, spaces and experiences. ​
