Brief Description

Created in 2014 under the invitation of Ville de Québec, Passages Insolites is about designing intriguing, playful temporary public art installations that enliven the district while fostering dialogue about our relationships to urban space and the world around us. This popular high-profile annual event gives visitors a unique, visually stunning public art experience. For 2018, EXMURO is calling on visual artists in all disciplines and architecture collectives to submit large-scale works that explore the project’s two central ideas: a “passage” is a place spectators pass through, while “insolite” describes the surreal, whimsical, extraordinary experience spectators enjoy while transiting through physical, metaphorical, or virtual passages. Artists are encouraged to freely interpret these ideas to produce their own signature “passage insolite”.
