To celebrate International Day of Peace on September 21, 2019, Ivanhoe Cambridge’s Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth and Fairmont The Château Frontenac hosted artist residencies within their institutions.
MASSIVart’s mandate was to select two artists, then coordinate and produce their residencies in Fairmont hotels. In Montreal, the artist Pony was chosen and in Quebec City Estée Preda was given the opportunity. Both have created artworks on the theme of peace. The two works were unveiled simultaneously and exhibited in the lobby of each hotel on the International Day of Peace. The artworks are now apart of the hotel’s permanent collections.
