Photo and video documentation of the ten actions that took place in the spring of 2015.

Between the months of April and June 2015, La Marche (est haute) presented ten artistic, digital, and audio interventions in the urban space, with the common denominator being that the actions required a slow-paced walk or at varying speeds. The initial phase of La Marche (est haute) was created with artists working in the fields of media, visual and audio arts, all of whom propose in their artistic practice a singular and personal approach to Montreal’s sonic and visual landscape. The documentation was provided by several participating artists: Bruno Julian, Catherine Béchard, Jacinthe Lessard, Manon Labrecque, Sabin Hudon, and by MINUTE.

The curator, Eric Mattson, and MINUTE Productions wish to thank the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec for their financial support, as well as Eastern Bloc for its collaboration, and, of course, the artists, without whom an event of this nature would simply not have been possible.
