The Montreal Eaton Centre transforms into an art gallery for one night - Art takes over February 28



    MONTREAL, Feb. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of the 6th edition of the
Montreal All-Nighter, an event included in the Montreal High Lights Festival,
the Montreal Eaton Centre is proud to be Zone 9 of the Art Souterrain Event.
Art Souterrain will transform the Underground City into a genuine art gallery,
and coincides with the vision of the Montreal Eaton Centre, who has already
provided its space to contemporary Montreal Artists. In 2007, Phil Allard
created the impressive sculpture made from empty water bottles, From Plastic
to Hope, and more recently, The City in Focus offered 12 Montreal
Photographers the opportunity to share their vision of the city.

    Grand happening all night - 14 artists showcase their work

    Photos, videos, projections and other artistic performances will take
place throughout the four levels of the mall. The 14 artists participating in
the event are: Julien Beauséjour, Stéphane Cocke et Carlito Dalceggio,
Collectif UQAM, Jannick Deslauriers, Marie-Eve Fortier, Terri J. Frew,
Gabriela Golder, Pascale Girardin, François-Joseph Lapointe, Julie Picard,
Jean-François Prost, Christine Redfern, Eric Sauvé, et Yamantaka.

    Spazuk, guest artist invited by the Montreal Eaton Centre

    He paints with fire, the soot of which becomes the ink for his drawings
and paintings. His art has already been exhibited in Montreal, Ottawa, Paris,
Berlin and Florence. The Montreal Eaton Centre is proud to welcome this artist
for a live performance in the Internet Lounge. An event not to be missed!
    Several boutiques and restaurants will remain open until midnight for
this special event. A DJ will also spin his wheels and complement all the
activities taking place, creating a lively and dynamic atmosphere.

    Happening on www.districtmontreal.com

    Everyone is invited to share their photos of the evening on
www.districtmontreal.com. Photos can even be uploaded on site in the Internet
Lounge. A great way to share your personal experience with others and for
those who could not make it to the event, to live the happening through the
eyes of others.
