Luminous Pathway

The essence of the Quartier des spectacles’ visual identity, the Luminous Pathway showcases the area’s rich offering. More than 30 public spaces and cultural venues are illuminated.

The Luminous Pathway has three elements:

1. Architectural video projections

Thursday to Saturday from sunset to 11 p.m*.
When night falls over the city, the various building façades illuminate and become the backdrop for original works all year long. New video projections are presented regularly.

*Except during certain events.


EN FORME! is a dynamic and joyful architectural projection. It marks the return of warm weather by projecting a colourful tropical world on the BAnQ, the walls outside Saint-Laurent metro station and UQAM’s Pavillon Président-Kennedy. The work plays with shapes and colours to create a light-hearted world full of funny characters. Each animation is an amusing celebration of the joys of summer, whether culinary, aquatic or athletic. Each scene is infused with the gleeful spirit of the summer holidays, with bubble-gum chewers, divers, dreamers and gourmands accompanied by a menagerie of happy animals.

Created by Gabriel Poirier-Galarneau of multimedia studio Champagne Club Sandwich, the work features the art of illustrator and animator Gabriel Masella.

With summer arriving during an unprecedented situation, the projection is a fun and engaging expression of our love of vacations, relaxation and getaways.
