Vivoir's studios

Immerse yourself in the universe of our resident artists

The first floor of the Vivoir is made up of open to the public artists' studios. Your visit in this stimulating environment will allow you to demystify the creation of the artworks of some of the Quebec artists whom are represented in the boutique-gallery on the floor above.

The concept

The innovative concept of ours open to the public studios resides in the glass partitions which are on either side of a corridor that you are invited to walk through. This unique space allows you to see inside artist's workshops in order to discover the atmosphere. There you will see tools, pieces being created and ideas in turmoil. You might even have the chance to meet artists at work!

Artists are free to schedule and the Vivoir team cannot know in advance which artist will be present at what times.
