This spring, the MMFA will open three exhibitions that address important societal issues through the work of contemporary artists. Starting in March, the exhibition Ecologies: A Song for Our Planet will explore the relationship between humans and nature, and disruptions to the planet’s ecosystems caused by human intervention. Then, in April, two monographic exhibitions will respectively spotlight Montreal contemporary artists Yann Pocreau, whose interest has turned to cosmology in his recent photography explorations, and Caroline Monnet, whose work sensitively depicts the precarious living conditions experienced by Canada’s Indigenous communities. Adding to this, visitors will be able to continue to enjoy the major exhibition Riopelle: The Call of Northern Landscapes and Indigenous Cultures until September 12, and the discovery exhibition GRAFIK! Five Centuries of German and Austrian Graphics until July 4.
