Call for creative proposals for bicycle lanes in Montreal’s Quartier des Spectacles


The Bureau d’art public de Montréal and the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership invite professional visual and digital artists to submit proposals for creative action on the bicycle lanes that crisscross the Quartier des Spectacles.

Actions may take any of several forms: imagery, lighting, sculpture, installations, etc. The project aims to create a unique experience for cyclists  (both day and night and in all four seasons) and at showcasing the particular identity of Montreal and the Quartier des Spectacles.

The call is composed of two parts:

Part 1: permanent public artwork:
The permanent work will become part of the Ville de Montréal’s permanent collection of public art. The winning proposal for the permanent work will have a maximum budget of $150,000 + taxes.

Part 2: temporary public artwork:
The temporary work will debut in April 2018 and return each year from April to the end of October 2020. The winning proposal for the temporary work will have a maximum total budget of $90,000 + taxes. This budget also includes maintenance for a period of three years (until October 2020).
As the city’s cultural core, the Quartier des Spectacles is a showcase for the most interesting and innovative developments in every creative discipline. Its outdoor spaces are designed as sites for exploring and presenting new types of urban creative work.
Deadline for proposal submission: noon 30 October 2017
