Discover the multidimensional and mysterious worlds of artists such as Alexandra Stréliski, Daniel Bélanger, Dominique Fils-Aimé, Vincent Morisset…

There is nothing more moving than the spontaneity of wonder. From the astonishing perspective of space, re-examine life on earth and whimsically revisit childhood rituals. The multisensorial works and interactive installations presented in our exhibition, Three movements, tell emotional and transformative contemporary stories.

The artists—several of whom are Quebecois (as Alexandra Stréliski, FouKi, Vincent Morisset and Felix & Paul Studios)—integrate the newest and most innovative technologies into their practice. From extended reality (AR, VR, and Mixed Reality) to generative art that responds to movement, through visual theatre, and immersive audio, we will revisit our relationship to storytelling.

Reanimating senses and engaging with our physical presence in the world, Three movements asks that we pause for a moment.

A visit through music

QUB Musique subscribers, soak up the atmosphere of the Three Movements exhibition by discovering our music playlist, which was notably inspired by the collection of virtual reality works ASTERIA.

A selection as eclectic as it is unifying, just like PHI's musical programming: focused on genre diversity, new rhythms from rising stars and established musicians, and sound exploration. The ideal playlist to accompany your summer.
