In order to adapt its productions to meet COVID-19 health regulations, MU developed “The Art of Distancing” an artistic and playful proposal for our shared spaces. Through ground marking and signage projects in the city’s public spaces, MU continued its mission: to beautify communities with socially engaged art and provide artists with work.
The borough of LaSalle kindly invited MU to take part in its exhibition presenting the work of local artists in its various public spaces. Under the theme of urban wandering, Julian Palma and Rafaël Sottolichio created works on the ground at the intersection of 4th Avenue and LaSalle Boulevard, and on Dollard Avenue, at the entrance to L’Octogone library.
Inspired by urban furniture and architectural elements, Rafaël Sottolichio created a Tape Art piece, Les circuits du savoir, that forms a playful and unexpected route and charms passers-by with its poetic trajectory. Julian Palma, for his part, offered the borough a piece inspired by the river that is just a stone’s throw away from it (intersection boulevard LaSalle/4e avenue).
