1. The 360-Degree Concert Documentary
How do you begin to retrace a career as monumental as Leonard Cohen’s? Montreal-based artist George Fok found the solution: let archival footage from three distinct periods of the musician’s life play simultaneously on a huge 360-degree screen. His installation, Passing Through, pays tribute to Cohen’s inimitable music, persona and stage presence by juxtaposing video clips from his time as a bohemian folk singer in the 1960s, socially conscious voice in the 1980s, and elder statesman of rock in the 2000s. For fans that didn’t get the chance to see Cohen perform before his death, Passing Through is as close to a live concert experience as you’ll get.
