EXMURO arts publics is a non-profit organization whose mandate is to design, create, and disseminate contemporary art projects in public spaces. Since 2007 EXMURO has constantly explored new avenues for presenting public artworks in the city. Through a range of projects, EXMURO works to expand the artistic possibilities of public spaces by reaching out to audiences to spark dialogue and foster critical thinking. For EXMURO, public art affords a freedom of experimentation and expression that is a necessary counterweight to the forces of standardization and pragmatism that govern so many facets of urban life. By weaving artworks into the urban fabric, we create possibilities to break through uniformity and standardization to create original and surprising experiences and encounters. 

EXMURO arts publics develops large-scale projects that build community and drive artistic development, and is recognized as an international leader in the world of public art, thanks to: 

  • Nearly 15 years’ experience designing and developing artworks and multidisciplinary projects in public spaces. 
  • Workshop and production spaces in Quebec City, and an experienced technical team. EXMURO has also successfully led remote co-productions with international artists. 
  • Presenter of major events such as PASSAGES INSOLITES (since 2014, Quebec City) and HUMANORIUM – The Strange Carnaval (since 2016; presented in Quebec City, Montreal (2017), Summerside, PEI (2018), Saint John, NB (2018) and Trois-Rivières (2019)). 
  • Developer of circulation projects to promote the work of participating artists and its achievements and expertise designing and presenting temporary public artworks in other cities in Quebec, Canada, and internationally.
