'Chagall: Color & Music'

When: Jan. 28-June 11 2017

Now open at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, this multidisciplinary exhibition features more than 300 works by the Russian-French modernist Marc Chagall. The show specifically emphasizes the tremendous interplay of musical and visual elements in his life and art. It highlights, for example, “the ubiquity of the violin itself, the instrument of the exodus, carried by the Jewish people as they fled or migrated,” and a projection of the Paris Opera ceiling, which the artist completed in 1964. Original artworks are amplified by a wealth of documentary materials, including films, photographs and music, to help recreate “the concept of total art that was so important to the artist.”
