As the city’s cultural core, the Quartier des Spectacles is a showcase for the most interesting and innovative developments in every creative discipline. Its outdoor spaces are designed as sites for exploring and presenting new types of urban creative work. For this call for proposals, creators will be asked to work with a new type of space: the bicycle lanes that crisscross the Quartier.
This call for proposals is for works with a permanent element along with temporary elements designed to last three years. It is a collaborative call, involving the Bureau d’art public de la Ville de Montréal (BAP) and the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership within the framework of the government of Quebec’s legacies to the city on the occasion of its 375th anniversary. It is part of a wider reflection undertaken by the Bureau d’art public on the integration of public art into Montreal’s bicycle lanes, and on the creation of temporary installations for public spaces.
This call for proposals is intended for professional visual and digital artists. Artists may work with other design professionals (design, architecture, landscape architecture). All submissions must address both components of this call for proposals.
Actions may take any of several forms: sculpture, installations, imagery, lighting, and can be comprised of one or more elements. The project to be integrated into the district’s bicycle lanes (see point 3) is aimed at giving cyclists a unique experience and at showcasing the particular identity of Montreal and the Quartier des Spectacles.
The temporary work will debut in Spring 2018 until October 2020.
THE PROPOSAL MUST BE SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 8, AT NOON.
