As of June 25, multimedia mural projections will light up buildings downtown, from the Quartier des spectacles to Old Montréal. Hommage à notre humanité will feature 21 tableaux that will come to life after dusk in images and words.
Unique visual works to discover
This exhibition features 100 faces of Montrealers of all generations and origins drawn from Cité Mémoire, the work presented in Old Montréal. The intention, in this case, is to present a reflection on our current experience in this year of pandemic.
A giant flame on the Palais de justice
A giant flame will be projected onto the wall at the Palais de justice in tribute to the people who have lost their lives to COVID-19. The projection will be accompanied by words, inspired by the most admirable human qualities embodied by the people leading the effort to save lives. These words are written in the 17 languages spoken most often in Montréal.

Hommage à notre humanité is a work by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, the creators who brought you Cité Mémoire. Touched by the events in recent months, the duo created a moving tableau based on Cité Mémoire. At once humanistic and unifying, these projections were produced by Montréal en Histoires and 4D Art.
