MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS
Founded in 1860, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is the oldest art museum in Canada and a leading museum in North America.
Its collection showcases Quebec and Canadian heritage and international art and comprises over 45,000 paintings, sculptures, graphic art works, photographs, multimedia installations and decorative art objects dating from antiquity to the present. The MMFA’s exhibitions span every discipline from archaeology to fine arts, to contemporary practices.
A FALL PROGRAM UNDER THE THEME OF HUMAN CONNECTION
“HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR ONE VOICE TO REACH ANOTHER?”
The season’s main exhibition unites major works from the Museum's collection together with recent acquisitions and important loans. The exhibition explores the theme of the human voice in both its physical and metaphorical registers, asking through art what it is to find meaningful connection.
