Promenade des Artistes
Between art and science, between UQAM’s Complexe des sciences Pierre-Dansereau and Place des Arts, the Promenade des Artistes offers a unique and inspiring location. This new public space, which links the Place des Festivals to Le Parterre, was created by reclaiming traffic lanes along Président-Kennedy Avenue and de Maisonneuve Boulevard.
Eleven structures, called “event vitrines”, are found here. These room-size glass boxes can house temporary art installations, as well as service or sales kiosks for major events. Just for fun, each event vitrine has an artistic code for you to solve. The key can be found on Vitrine 0, which lets you decipher the word encoded on each of the others.
Designed by Daoust Lestage architecture design urbain, the space has been realized by the Ville de Montréal as part of the planning project for the Place des Arts node of the Quartier des spectacles.
