A 200-page thematic book published in conjunction with the exhibition “Sur l'expérience de la ville : interventions en milieu urbain,” which presented in situ works across the city of Montréal from August 29 to December 14, 1997, and featured a series of talks organised in collaboration with the Visual Arts Department of Université du Québec à Montréal and the Canadian Centre for Architecture. On art in urban spaces, artists and community.



The exhibition and accompanying talks were an opportunity to reflect upon the notion of urban space in an era marked by the end of utopias. Gathering transient and selective works across the city, the project aimed to critically address the socio-political context of Montréal as well as the traditional and monumental role of the art work within the urban fabric.
