Throughout history, humans have used art to communicate with each other without relying on words. Art has been used to express political ideas, reinforce religion, or convey deeply personal thoughts.
The art of communicating ideas through visual form is analysed and produced through several different mediums in these currently running exhibitions in Montreal

Produkt, in collaboration with Artechouse, is proud to announce the brand new immersive visual experiment INTANGIBLE FORMS.
After a successful debut in New York, the larger than life exhibit of Japanese artist Shohei Fujimoto made its Canadian debut last Thursday, January 20th on the historic site of Montreal’s New City Gas.
The seven individual art installations consist of one immense statement centralized piece that utilizes hundreds of coordinated lasers, haze, strobe light, and moving lights, along with six other separate multi-sensory pieces.
One of these pieces is : Power of One that explores how a source of bright light can create and define a space. The work aims to recreate the void in 2 dimensions. However through our eyes, a cube is still there, as a solid shape that seems three-dimensional.
