The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership has announced five finalists for the seventh edition of Luminothérapie, Quebec’s largest competition for temporary public art installations.

The goal of the multidisciplinary competition is to produce an original winter-themed interactive experience in the Quartier des Spectacles with a large-scale installation in the Place des Festivals. As in previous years, designers were invited to form multidisciplinary teams (design, architecture, visual and digital arts) to create an experience highlighting diverse perspectives and emerging practices.

For this seventh edition, participants worked within the “tale” theme to create a sense of wonder both day and night, while encouraging the participation of a broad audience, including families. Architectural video projections for two adjacent building façades will complete a unified concept through integration with the narrative structure of the primary work.

Five finalists have been selected from 28 entries:

The winner’s work will be presented in the Place des Festivals from December 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017.
