MMFA offers a virtual edition of the Riopelle exhibition
Riopelle: The Call Of Northern Landscapes And Indigenous Cultures starts December 1
As we wait for Quebec museums to reopen, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is offering the public free access to the virtual edition of its new exhibition, Riopelle: The Call of Northern Landscapes and Indigenous Cultures, from December 1, 2020, to January 11, 2021.
This major exhibition devoted to Jean Paul Riopelle (1923-2002), recognized as one of the most important and prolific Canadian artists of the 20th century, explores the artist’s interest in northern and Indigenous culture through 160 works and over 150 artifacts and archival documents. Based on original research, the exhibition sheds new light on the artist’s production from the 1950s to the 1970s by tracing the travels and influences that nurtured his interest in North America’s northern lands and Indigenous communities.
Note that the Museum is closely monitoring the situation and waiting for government directives about when it can reopen to the public.
Starting December 1, 2020, discover this exhibition virtually at:
