This fall, the MMFA will offer you an exhibition program, which will highlight the rich diversity of our artistic heritage. A highlight this season will be a major exhibition devoted to Jean Paul Riopelle that will explore a new perspective of the influence of nordicity and Indigenous cultures on the work of this Canadian artist through some 175 artworks.

You will also experience a stirring installation by Jewish artist Yehouda Chaki that pays tribute to victims of the Holocaust, along with the first solo Montreal exhibition by Haitian-born multidisciplinary artist Manuel Mathieu. Also on tap is an exhibition of works from the MMFA’s collection that celebrates five centuries of German and Austrian graphic art.

If you haven’t done so already, don’t miss the unique chance to see over 500 works from an exceptional private collection. Featuring a large body of works by Paul Signac, the exhibition Paris in the Days of Post-Impressionism: Signac and the Indépendants is presented exclusively in Montreal until mid-November.
