Main text of post

As part of the ideas competition for the illumination of the Gesù façade, the Gesù, in collaboration with the Quartier des spectacles Partnership and the Design Montréal office of the City of Montreal, is proud to present Lighting up the Gesù. This exhibit, which will run until March 28, 2009, brings together 37 proposals for architectural and scenographic lighting, including ideas from three continents.

This unique exhibit, part of the Quartier des spectacles Lighting Plan, offers you the chance to discover an important cultural and historic site through the creativity of designers from Brazil, India, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States and across Canada. All responded to the invitation, issued last November, to reveal the unique personality of the Gesù through the use of light.

During the exhibit, you will be able to vote for your favorite concept. A “public’s choice” prize of $2,000 will be awarded to the team whose proposal wins the most votes. The deadline to vote is February 28, the date of the Montreal High Lights Festival All-Nighter.
