The media talk about Montreal Karnaval and R O Y BOX
‘Magic, hope and reflection were emerging from the Terra Karnaval taking place on Saturday evening in downtown Montreal and created by and for children. A friendly parade choreographed by Jean-Philippe Giraud.’
According to Robert Charlebois, a fan of Danielle Roy, this year’s Carnival was her ‘best one’.

‘…Therefore, it seems to me like a one-size-fits-all parade, designed by Danielle Roy and prepared together with the various associations with whom the Carnival has been working for a long time, reflecting and enhancing the humanistic and multicultural vision Jean Paul Gaultier has of fashion, is definitely relevant….’ Nathalie Bondil, Director and Chief Curator of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, who initiated and produced this exhibit dedicated to Jean Paul Gaultier is delighted about this opportunity to have these two artists and the Museum collaborate since she has been particularly active in promoting art beyond the walls of the Museum and in developing partnerships putting the city and its citizens at the core of her projects.

Le Grand baiser (2009 edition) seemed to me like a show in the true spirit of Montreal by the poetry emanating from it, the open-mindedness that is being promoted and by the civic participation of hundreds of young volunteers who paid tribute to art and creation with passion and enthusiasm.
