Artefact Montréal - Urban Sculptures is an event that invites artists to create ephemeral public sculptures, on a chosen site in Montreal.
For the 2007 edition, 20 artists from 5 different continents will come celebrate the 40th anniversary of Expo 67. From June 27 to September 30, these artists will create ephemeral works based on "the concept of a pavilion", on Île Sainte-Hélène.
The Artefact Montreal website states: "In this edition of Artefact Montréal 2007, the intention is to re-visit a site but also an era – a given time and place – that will bring back memories for some and at the same time let a new generation discover the great significance of this international event that literally transformed our metropolis."
As in previous editions of Artefact Montreal, the sculptures will be dismantled at the end of the event.
