New exhibition – Of Individuals and Places : Photographs from the Lazare Collection

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) invites the public to a contemplation in Of Individuals and Places: Photographs from the Lazare Collection. Bringing together close to 100 photographs by major Canadian and international artists, this exhibition underscores Montreal collector Jack Lazare’s 20-year passion for photography, which he has a desire to share with the public. It is also an opportunity to display a selection of photographs from a group of 33 artworks the collector generously gifted to the Museum in 2017.

A businessman specializing in the in the travel and music industries, and a member of the Acquisition Committee – International Art After 1900, Jack Lazare has been building up an outstanding collection of photographs – mainly contemporary – since the 1980s. The show reveals his sensitive eye and a particular love of eloquent images that give us food for thought.
