Aeroports de Montreal Officially Opens the Montreal in Motion: 20 Portraits Media Arts Exhibition at Montreal-Trudeau Airport

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2007) - Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) today officially opened the Montreal in Motion: 20 Portraits media arts exhibition, produced by ilU, an artists collective that won a call for ideas held by ADM in 2006. Projected on the giant LED screen in Montreal-Trudeau airport's international arrivals complex, the work comprises a series of 20 video portraits of dynamic Montrealers who are helping make Montreal a city in motion.

The 20 subjects of Montreal in Motion: 20 Portraits hail from the city's different milieux - culture, sports, performing arts, business and community (see attached list). With grace and sensitivity, these minute-long portraits pique the viewer's interest and curiosity with motion created around stationary subjects posing against backgrounds that are typical of both Montreal and the personalities' own environments.

This exhibition is part of ADM's Montreal Identity program, an initiative aimed at infusing its airport facilities with a typically "Montreal" character, while helping to support the city's artistic and cultural development.

ADM would like to acknowledge the contributions of the external members of the Montreal Identity program advisory committee involved in this innovative project: Danielle Sauvage, Executive Director, Conseil des arts de Montreal; Pierre Bellerose, Vice-President, Research and Public Relations, Tourisme Montreal; Johanne Brouillet, Artistic Advisor; and Michel Hardy, Head of Design, Cardinal Hardy Architectes.
