CHAGALL : COLOUR & MUSIC

Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Canada
We are in charge
of the french press relations for the Montreal Museum of
Fine Arts, Canada.
Chagall: Colour and Music is the biggest Canadian exhibition
ever devoted to Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Featuring 340
works of art and a large selection of documentary works,
including films, photographs and musical excerpts, this
multidisciplinary exhibition is the first to focus on Chagall’s
profound connection to music in his life and work. Through
this original approach, the exhibition demonstrates how
all of Chagall’s work, from his paintings, works on
paper, costumes, sculptures, ceramics, stained glass and
tapestries to his creations for the stage and his large-scale
decorative and architectural projects, were imbued with
musicality. The layout of this major exhibition is both
chronological and thematic, covering all the periods of
the artist’s long and productive career – his
years in Russia, his Parisian period, his exile in New York,
his time in Mexico and his life in the South of France.
