BLACK CANADIAN CONTEMPORARY ART
May 12 to September 16, 2018
This exhibition challenges preconceived notions of Blackness in Canada through the work of eight contemporary artists, to which the Montréeal Museum of Fine Arts has added three Montréeal artists in its presentation. They express a multitude of viewpoints on the place of Canadians of African descent.
The artworks in this exhibition use current and historical objects, images and ideas to blur the longstanding perception that Black bodies belong on the edge of Canadian history.
Founded in 1860 as the Art Association of Montreal by a group of Montreal art collectors and patrons, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) was one of the first museums in North America to build up an encyclopedic collection worthy of the name. It now numbers over 43,000 works from Antiquity to today, making it unique in Canada.
