NICOLAS PARTY: L’HEURE MAUVE
FEBRUARY 12 – OCTOBER 16, 2022
For Nicolas Party's first exhibition in Canada, the MMFA gave him carte blanche to create a dialogue between his works and a selection from the Museum's collection. Through over 100 works and a series of monumental murals realized in situ, the Swiss-born artist, considered to be one of the most important of our time, presents a dreamlike experience on the theme of nature. The Museum's galleries provide the veritable canvas onto which this visual artist and muralist – cum curator and exhibition designer – is expressing his art in its full measure. The exhibition is set to song by singer-songwriter-composer Pierre Lapointe.
