La ville suspendue at Le Plateau-Mont-Royal
September 9th and 10th - Parc La Fontaine
The McCord Museum
La ville suspendue, is an exhibition-installation inspired by Montréal’s clotheslines and monumental neon signs. First and foremost, it is a series of selected pieces which represent the city as it has evolved through history; the city suspended in time, at different instances, between its past and its future. Montréal’s history is represented by eight major symbols, each of which evoke a segment of the city’s development. Different characters embody the history of each borough. The focus is on the element of fiction, which was inspired by Montrealers’ memories and reflections. What emerges are stories that capture a slice of urban life, which are highlighted by historical vignettes. Everything is tied together by series of moments that recall key events in the development of our neighbourhoods. Photos, stories and historic events are woven together to create an exhibition-installation everyone will have fun discovering.
