Montrealers only have a few more days to check out the city’s public art trail.

KMis the largest outdoor temporary public art event ever presented in Montreal. Walk through Quartier des Spectacles and view over 20 new works of art. The massive art walk will end on October 15.

Throughout the summer and fall, the event has featured Quebec-based creators working in the visual arts, urban art, digital art, design and architecture.

Before KM comes to a close be sure to check out these exhibits:

Humanorium – Jardins Gamelin 

This fair celebrates the strange and unusual and is a nod to the travelling carnivals of the 19th and 20th century. But this carnival comes with a twist as all of its attractions are created by contemporary artists.

Human Playground – Sainte-Catherine Street

An urban choreographic installation featuring poetic relationship games, silly situations, and invitations to dance on the sidewalk.

Ensemble Ensemble – Saint-Laurent metro station

By letting the immense camera scan them, spectators receive a personalized prediction of their future altruistic acts.

Patrick Bérubé – Our DNA – Promenade des Artistes

An installation using a powerful symbol of Montreal identity: a spiral staircase suspended in the air and adorned with unusual items embodying the culture of neighbourliness and friendly back alleys

Pavrita Wickramasinghe – Frontier – Ruelle Dufault corner Sanguinet

Part floating island and part chandelier, a hanging boat lights the pavement below with a fantastical dance of light and shadow, reminding us of the nearby St. Lawrence River.

Philippe Allard – La vie m’échappe – Loop starting/ending on Sainte-Catherine St. East

A poetic stroll punctuated with illuminated signs that help us appreciate otherwise unnoticed details in the urban landscape.

See all the works you can check out along the KM here.
