Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything
To celebrate the life of Leonard Cohen one year after his death on Nov. 7, 2016, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) launched the first major exhibition dedicated to the singer-songwriter and poet’s work. The exhibition, Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything, features 20 multimedia works from 40 artists hailing from 10 different countries. Combining visual art, music, and virtual reality, the exhibition offers fans and newbies alike a new perspective on Cohen, who was born and raised in Montreal. “We were in full-on preparations for [the exhibition] when [Cohen] died, so what began as an ardent celebration of his work turned into something a little more commemorative,” says the MAC’s curator John Zeppetelli, who, along with co-curator Victor Schiffman, aimed to create an immersive environment that attracted people who wouldn’t normally visit contemporary art museums.
