“The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ exhibition – the first retrospective ever presented in North America – corrects a major oversight and broadens perspectives by demonstrating with rigour the development of his oeuvre.”
Beaux Arts Magazine

“The first comprehensive retrospective in North America devoted to Tom Wesselmann, Pop Art’s fourth Musketeer, has everything to appeal to visitors.”
- L’œil

“Well beyond Pop Art… Tom Wesselmann is a giant. Finally, a superb exhibition that does him justice.”
- Art actuel

MIRABILIA

By Dominique Blain

By Dominique Blain, artist Artist Dominique Blain will discuss her installation Mirabilia, created in 2011 for the Level 3 terrace of the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art. This luminous necropolis evokes the cultural and spiritual treasures lost, pillaged, destroyed by History – the objects the museums did not manage to save.

Unless otherwise indicated, lectures are presented free of charge at the Maxwell Cummings Auditorium, Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion, 1379-A Sherbrooke Street West.
Doors open 30 minutes before the event begins.

Places are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
