Partenariat du Quartier des spectacles
Art consultancy, Production management
As part of “Jump Start Summer!” during summer 2020 in Montreal, MASSIVart collaborated with the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership to select and supervise the production of seven art installations in various public spaces in the city.
This initiative was intended to be the embodiment of the creativity and resilience of our artistic community. We collaborated with Jose Luis Torres, Viviane L-Dupuy for Pelouse, 2×4, Lucas Tisné, The Urban Conga, Judith Portier (Filles de Design), Waxhead, Esrawe + Cadena, HUB Studio, Creos and Dix2.
“Jump Start Summer!” was a call to Montrealers to support the city’s restaurants, stores, hotels, artists and creators during summer 2020. How? By going out, exploring, encouraging local businesses, taking a mini-vacation in their city.
MASSIVart acted as artistic consultants and operated the production management of 7 public art installations – called Placott’arts. These are relaxing stops carefully arranged by Montreal artists, designers or creative studios to (re)discover iconic downtown locations. These different works are the perfect motivators to encourage the population to re-appropriate the city through this creative journey – or museum – in the open air. It also encourages regional tourism by offering a cultural program that is accessible to everyone, anytime, easily.
