January 9, 2015 - It’s almost time for Art Souterrain, and for the 2015 edition, this exciting, creative festival invites you to explore the idea of security in our society: what remains of our personal freedoms” and raises questions about the various security measures implemented in our society in the aim of protecting its citizens. And all this takes place in Montréal’s renowned underground city.

Kilometres and kilometres of artworks take over the subterranean network. From the shops at the heart of Central Station to Métro entrances, diversity is key. Works, both local and international, include projections, photography, and large-scale paintings and sculptures.

Looking for an activity to do with kids? The festival invites all primary schools, high schools, daycares, and CEGEPS, as well as community groups and families, to partake in the Discovery Path, a guided one-hour tour, adjusted to age groups, which gives participants an introduction to what art is all about. They’re free, out of the ordinary, and definitely interesting.

Whether you’re in a group or alone, on a date or with friends, the 2015 Art Souterrain is a must for anyone with even the slightest interest in art. Relax, contemplate, discuss, and feel productive, all at the same time.
