Arsenal: The best of modern art in Griffintown
Come and discover unique exhibits from local and international artists
It’s a must-see for many in the neighborhood!
Founded in 2012 and housed in a former shipyard, the building’s architecture is worth the visit. With over 50,000 square feet entirely devoted to contemporary art, Arsenal never ceases to amaze with unique exhibitions by renowned local and international artists.
For fashion enthusiasts, the Neutrality exhibition by Rad Hourani explores a world without borders. Neither an artist nor a photographer or designer, but all together, the Canadian of Syrian and Jordanian origin already has a great reputation internationally. He was also the first designer to present a unisex couture collection at fashion week in Paris. For those who love unique clothing with symmetrical cuts, a temporary shop with ready-to-wear pieces from the artist has been specially created for this exhibition. The kind of pieces that, like his art, may appreciate in value over time.
For those who prefer video, the exhibit from Y20 Duality and Dominic Shotz will be more to your liking. This is a big event for this multi-platform system that combines all the artist’s mediums. A mixture of video, photography and sculptures that explore the various emotional and physical dualities of a couple. An exhibition that will take you back to your own ‘others’ and a world that will conquer even the most skeptical of contemporary art.
Finally, you can also take a tour of the gallery representing several artists from here and abroad. A great opportunity to find that rare gem to dress up one of the walls in your new condo or maybe even start your own collection.
