This giant retrofitted industrial space in Little Burgundy is one of the city’s most grandiose art spaces, and not only for its sheer volume: the cavernous main space is used to host cultural and commercial events such as fashion shows and the annual business convention C2MTL, not to mention some of the best parties around. But the main reason to visit this building is Division Gallery, which is located on its second floor. This contemporary art gallery represents high caliber international artists as well as locals, including Nicolas Baier and Michel de Brouin. The Arsenal itself also holds temporary exhibitions, and fills its interstitial spaces with fantastic works from its permanent collection; David Altmejd figures prominently.
