EXMURO arts publics is now planning the summer 2019 edition of PASSAGES INSOLITES (Unusual Passages), an annual circuit of public art installations. The selected works will be displayed throughout Québec City’s old town (made up of the Old Port, Place-Royale, and Petit-Champlain) and Saint-Roch district.

Created in 2014, PASSAGES INSOLITES is about creating intriguing, playful temporary public art installations that enliven the district while fostering dialogue about our relationships to urban space and the world around us. This popular high-profile annual event gives visitors a unique, visually stunning public art experience.

For 2019, EXMURO is calling on visual artists in all disciplines and architecture collectives to submit large-scale works that explore the project’s two central ideas: a “passage” is a place spectators pass through, while “insolite” describes the surreal, whimsical, extraordinary experience spectators enjoy while transiting through physical, metaphorical, or virtual passages. Artists are encouraged to freely interpret these ideas to produce their own signature “passage insolite.”

EXMURO is especially receptive to submissions that capture the public imagination through their monumental, astonishing, and destabilizing character, as well as their potential to provoke a new and unusual dialogue with the architecture or history. PASSAGES INSOLITES is a feast for the eyes that joyfully asserts public art’s place in the urban fabric!

Artists may submit site-specific works tailored to a location, or projects adaptable to various locations (parks, sidewalks, roofs, façades, public squares, docks, etc.). Locations can be selected from those used in previous editions (passagesinsolites.com), or new locations can be proposed (subject to approval). Multi-section works designed to be experienced in more than one location will be considered. Applicants may contact EXMURO to discuss their choice of location prior to submitting their project.

A maximum budget of $25,000 will be allocated for each work. This includes all artist fees and expenses and setup and takedown costs. EXMURO will monitor the artistic and technical progress of projects throughout the process.

Public artworks must be durable (to last 4 months outside), safe, and self-sufficient (not requiring surveillance of any kind.)
