Talking window art has taken over a Montreal neighbourhood

May 25 2017, 12:40 pm

A crazy art exhibition is taking over RDP this week!

Titled “Windows That Talk,” this unique exhibit sees borough residents offering up their house windows to artists. Artists then come in and install a piece of artwork in the window, ranging from photographs and comics to paintings and text.

Then, as pedestrians walk the streets of RDP, they will be treated to a live art exhibit in the windows and on the balconies of homes in their neighbourhood.


The official description reads, “The street will then become a living place, stimulating meetings and exchanges between visitors, artists and residents.”

“Talking windows” was an art form born in northern France roughly 15 years ago. It has been brought to Montreal as part of the city’s 375th birthday celebrations.

The event kicked off yesterday and will be wrapping up this Sunday, May 28.

The bulk of the action is happening on Rue Notre-Dame E between François-Langlois and Antoine Bazinet Diasol so be sure to head there ASAP!
