The 2nd CHIAROSCURO Soirée

On Friday, February 10, in the lead-up to Valentine's Day, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts will have you quivering with delight during the second CHIAROSCURO soirée as it takes you on a journey where there is no need for love. The CHIAROSCURO soirées are unrivalled cultural events designed for 18- to 30-year-olds that offer a chance to see the MMFA's collections and discovery exhibitions in a different light during an evening that combines art, drinks, tasty treats, and musical performances in an exciting atmosphere.

The body, without the heart, will be sublimated and given centre stage during a multisensory trek through the different levels of the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion. Roam the rooms in search of on-site performances given by Tentacle Tribe, combining hip-hop dance and classical ballet, or by artists from MAPP MTL who will place you at the centre of their illusionary projections. Baillat Communications offers an immersive and artistic space, similar to our creative workshops, where your senses will have free rein for expression.

From 7 p.m. to midnight, fall in love with the electronic performances of our guest DJs and the futuristic and hypnotic sounds of Syzzors.

Expert bartenders will be on hand to ply you with their signature cocktails and rekindle each of your most fanciful dreams.

Munch on some Bar à Beurre chocolate treats or try gourmet corn dogs prepared by Brera Catering, available at affordable prices from the various gourmet catering stands.

Finally, explore the Museum galleries and view DECORATIVE ARTS AND DESIGN in a new light, as well as the WORLD CULTURES and MEDITERRANEAN ARCHAEOLOGY collections.
