Cortège proposes an experience that draws on the participatory and performing practice in contemporary art, on the immersive aspects of digital arts and utilizes certain game art mechanics.
First conceived to spark collective interactions on the Promenade Fleuve-Montagne, the artwork has been adapted to the pandemic context to offer you an experience that is accessible easily and individually, everywhere in the city.
From July 3rd, you will be able to download the new app’s extension and enhance your daily movements. Cortège lets you apprehend Montréal differently while guiding you through scenarios anchored in the fine lines between reality and fiction.
