The Complexe

in summer mode



From June 21 to September 29, celebrate the summer season with Complexe Desjardins by enjoying an artistic itinerary in collaboration with renowned artists, as well as many other activities.


Coming this summer:


Murals: starting on June 21, the talented visual artist Gabrielle Laïla Tittley, aka Pony, will unveil an installation entitled “Montréal souterraine”, transforming Complexe Desjardins walls into vibrant murals. Pony is a multidisciplinary Montreal artist whose creations fuse the innocence of childhood with adult reality in a surreal aesthetic. Sprinkled with humour, her art is a perfect mix of existential crisis and ultimate attempt at solace.

The murals illustrate Pony's vision of what Complexe Desjardins represents. With their many "Easter eggs" to be discovered, bright colours and whimsical characters, these works are sure to catch your eye and pique your curiosity.

This installation is produced by LNDMRK. For over 12 years, LNDMRK has been inspiring audiences through the power of art. Curators, producers and promoters of visual art, LNDMRK creates relevant artistic moments that leave a lasting impression.

Immerse yourself in the details of Pony's creations made especially for Complexe Desjardins on Level 3.


Photobooths: from June 21 to September 7, use our special summer photobooths to transform your Instagram profile. If you're looking for a fun photo opp, look no further than our six large walls with different decorations, featuring Pony's artwork, vibrant colours and patterns, and neon lights.

Your next photo shoot is waiting on Level 3 near the René-Lévesque entrance!
