Production studios

The new production studios will be made available to professional artists so that they can explore new techniques and open their practices to other media. An indispensable site for visual arts creation and display, the Darling Foundry is thus enhancing its activities by providing an extensively equipped multidisciplinary production facility.

This offer, the only one of its kind in Montréal, is complemented by innovative training courses based on the exchange and pooling of technical skills. By encouraging the sharing of expertise, the Darling Foundry hopes to strengthen collaborations within the Montréal art community.

Ever since the former industrial building was converted into a visual arts centre, which then added spaces for local and international artist residencies, the Darling Foundry has always promoted a spirit of cooperation by supporting the creation and display of works by emerging artists. This is why it was seen as important to make state-of-the-art equipment accessible at a very affordable membership price.

Modernization of the production studios made it possible to create a safe environment that considerably improves the conditions for producing artworks, thanks in particular to the installation of a high-ventilation, insulation, and soundproofing system.

The Ville de Montréal has contributed to the realization of the production studios and the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment.

The studios, divided into different stations, offer an exceptional multifunctional work environment.



The workshops are divided into five different stations:
