Place publique 2010

The 2010 theme of the Place Publique was Fugue urbaine, an in situ cavalcade with artworks of Canadian and international artists that intertwined with the urban fabric in a neighbourhood facing increasing uncertainty ahead of a major redevelopment. Centred around three sites - the Place Publique in front of the Darling Foundry, the former New City Gas building and two viaducts beneath the Bonaventure highway - the artworks united Ottawa St from East to West, from Faubourg des Récollets to Griffintown, and created an artistic path on Ottawa street. An urban terrace was also settled with tables by Mathieu Beauséjour on the Place Publique.
