Francis Montillaud lives and works in Montreal. His practice oscillates between installation, sculpture and video. He has presented his work at various artist-run centers and events in Quebec, Canada and France. Since 2007, he has created several ephemeral installations in the cities of Montreal, Quebec and Gatineau. His permanent public artworks can be seen in Montreal, Ottawa and Winnipeg, and as part of several projects to integrate the arts into architecture under the 1% policy. In 2024, he will install a work composed of several suspended sculptures and murals at the Pie-IX metro station in Montreal.

This event is made possible by the Fonds d’initiatives annuelles de l’arrondissement Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve to support creativity and artistic diversity.
