What was an industrial boatyard in 1846 is now 4,200 square metres filled with contemporary art, not to mention the new home of Montreal Fashion Week. “The area has everything to become an important Canadian hub of contemporary art; another gallery, Antoine Ertaskiran, just opened on the same block,” says Arsenal’s director Jean-François Bélisle, who also points to Le Boucan, a smokehouse down the street serving some of the best ribs and pulled pork he’s had.
