Springtime in Montreal (if it ever gets here) is going to be out of this world. At Place Émilie-Gamelin there will be a lively, gigantic art installation must-see attraction that returns to Montreal for the fourth consecutive year.
First of all, it’s moving art called 1.26, by Janet Echelman, an American artist. It is inspired by the earthquake that caused a tsunami in Chile, 8 years ago.
If you haven’t seen it, or want to see it again (and why wouldn’t you, it’s glorious) then head over to Place Émilie-Gamelin from mid-May to the end of September.
Secondly, it’s shaped like a net and is able to change its form and light up whenever the wind blows!
Where: Quartier des Spectacles
When: May 17 to September 30
