Portrait sonore - Public Art

Things to do at the Parc Public Art

In collaboration with the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau, the "Portrait Sonore" organization is offering a two-hour walking-tour documentary that accompanies you as you discover the public art collections displayed at the Parc.

A walking path on îles Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame is there for your journey, on which you can learn more about these works and the artists who created them.

Each audio clip provides a history of the art work, comments and anecdotes (from observers, creators and experts), along with a musical track specially composed for this walking-tour documentary.

In fact, 15 musicians from Québec's music scene each offer their own musical interpretation of a work. The result: 15 original compositions that sharpen our senses and, in a very personal manner, inject new life into these works; it's an eclectic and astute selection skillfully directed by composer Antoine Bédard (and which includes Catherine Major, DJ Champion and Diane Labrosse, among others).
