Luminothérapie: 10 Years of Winter Creativity in the Quartier des Spectacles

Montréal, Canada

Quartier des Spectacles Partnership

From November 28, 2019, to January 26, 2020

Montréal, Canada, 2019-12-11 - 

This year the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership is presenting the 10th annual edition of its winter event, Luminothérapie. The anniversary is being marked with an astonishing interactive installation on the theme of celebration: POP! by Montreal creative studio Gentilhomme.


10 YEARS OF BOLD INTERACTIVE WORKS FOR PUBLIC SPACE

Luminothérapie is Quebec’s largest competition for temporary public installations. For the last 10 years, it has presented captivating and original interactive experiences in the Quartier des Spectacles, with a large-scale installation in Place des Festivals accompanied by an architectural projection. It has become an essential winter event for visitors to Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles. 


Luminothérapie is aimed at stimulating creativity in the disciplines of urban art installations and digital art. Over the years, it has been a springboard for numerous Canadian artists. The experience is renewed each year with remarkable boldness. The creative use of light makes the experiences immersive, participatory or meditative, as part of a larger goal of encouraging the public to embrace the public spaces of the Quartier des Spectacles.

In 2016, the Partnership won a certificate of merit at the National Urban Design Awards presented by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. The creators of the Luminothérapie works have won a dozen awards in the disciplines of lighting, architecture and digital creation.


SINCE 2010, LUMINOTHÉRAPIE HAS BEEN: 

o 15 artworks, installations and projections created; 

o More than 150 creators, artists and cultural enterprises;

o 306 proposals submitted to the annual competition.


THE LUMINOTHÉRAPIE INSTALLATIONS AROUND THE WORLD
Several cultural districts around the world have shown interest in the Quartier’s participatory and interactive works created for public space. The installations, made in Montreal for Luminothérapie, have a universal and unifying character, and now tour to the delight of crowds of people around the world. Since 2016, six winners of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership’s winter competition have been exhibited 77 times in more than 35 cities, including New York, London, Brussels, Jerusalem, Lugano, Toronto, Chicago and Washington, D.C.


UNTIL JANUARY 26, 2020, COME PARTY WITH THE POP! CREATURES 

Five enigmatic monoliths conceal fantastical creatures who love to party. With the public’s encouragement, calls and chanting, each monolith gradually lights up until it opens, freeing a creature who puts on a show. Just to the north, an architectural projection on UQAM’s Pavillon Président-Kennedy features all five POP! creatures.


Although funny and irreverent – Gentilhomme signatures – the installation’s simple, playful approach has subtle depth, with several tributes to popular culture and winter folklore. Over the centuries, people have found comfort, hope and joy in gathering and partying to get through the cold, dark winter.
