Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal Book

The MAC is pleased to present Leonard Cohen: Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything, an exhibition of international scope presented as part of the festivities for Montréal’s 375th anniversary, which will take place in fall 2017.

Through his poems and his music and lyrics, Cohen touches a huge audience and influences countless artists across all disciplines and generations around the world. The exhibition is an homage to this global star and touchstone of Montréal culture.

Created exclusively for the MAC for the occasion, this multidisciplinary exhibition will allow the Musée to offer the public a collection of brand-new works commissioned from and created by local and international artists who were inspired by the great master’s style and recurring themes. These artists represent the visual arts, performance art, music, the written word and film, thus providing visitors with a dynamic, participative and immersive experience. Leonard Cohen will be part of the programming for the celebration of Montréal’s 375th anniversary.

The MAC is thrilled about Leonard Cohen’s support of this project, which will allow the Musée to delve deep into his career in order to present an innovative and original exhibition.
