A concert series in parallel with the MAC exhibition Leonard Cohen – A crack in everything
As part of the Leonard Cohen – Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything exhibition which will be presented at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal from November 9, 2017 – April 9, 2018, we are pleased to announce a series of five concerts, based on five iconic Leonard Cohen albums, during the five months of the exhibition.
Each concert will present musicians and guest singers from Montreal who will perform a Cohen album in its entirety, in an intimate setting at la Salle Gesù, in keeping with the original intention and order of the songs in the album.
A SERIES TIED-IN WITH THE CONCEPT OF THE MAC EXHIBITION
Organized as an extension of the originating concept of the MAC exhibition, which is to explore the influence and impact of Leonard Cohen on art communities, the series reflects the MAC’s wish to offer local Montreal musicians and artists an opportunity to present their own interpretation of classic Cohen songs. The concerts are another way to pay tribute to Cohen’s artistic genius and to keep his legacy alive and contemporary.
