First, it was the Museum of Fine Arts, then the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, and now, Arsenal art contemporain Montréal has officially reopened!

Known as the museum where the iconic "Imagine Van Gogh" exhibition was put on display, this lesser-known museum in Griffintown is a must-see for any Montrealer who has yet to visit.

The newest exhibition, "Wild Knots" by Jean-Michel Othoniel, got its name from "the mathematical theory of the knot [that] reveals the existence of more than a million possible knots."

When visiting, you walk into a massive dark room and have 16 vibrant sculptures light your way.

The exhibit is meant to spark feelings of "wonderment" and it successfully does exactly that.

Another one of the exhibits currently found at Arsenal is the "Selfie Project, 8th Edition" by Véronique Duplain, which lets you explore multiple colourful sets that the photographer uses for the background of her portraits.

It makes you feel like you're hopping into new universes with each of Véronique's different setups.
