Welcome to F.A.T. Snaps, a weekly summary of fashion, art and tech-related events we’ve attended, and other random musings in and around Montreal.
Another week, another round of discovery! Here’s what our Week 12 looked like.
Lemonade Official Launch Event
1350 Mazurette #224
Last week Lemonade Workspace held an open-house party to invite members of the Central District neighbourhood to get a first glance at their modern-rustic co-working lounge.
Aperitivo’s and gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches were provided by Brera Catering, and boy were they tasty! Speaking of food, Lemonade also features a cafe and shared culinary space which is included in the membership. If cooking or food prep isn’t your thing, take advantage of the buildings cafe. If you find it tough to fit a workout into your work day, the building also features gym. What’s not to love about Lemonade Workspace?
Chagall: Colour and Music Exhibition
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts – 1380, Sherbrooke Street O, Montreal, QC, H3G 1J5
January 28th until June 11th 2017
We were particularly wow-ed by the costumes and the interplay between the art, colour and music at the media preview for Chagall. At first, the exhibit starts off slow and when the music kicks in, it manages to seduce you.
Colour and Music is the biggest Canadian exhibition ever devoted to Marc Chagall, and features over 300 separate works of art. The exhibit also features documentary works, films, photographs and musical excerpts. Known as a multidisciplinary exhibition, “Chagall: Colour and Music epitomizes Chagall’s profound connection to music in his life and work and demonstrates how all of Chagall’s work, from his paintings, works on paper, costumes, sculptures, ceramics, stained glass and tapestries to his creations for the stage and his large-scale decorative and architectural projects, were imbued with musicality.”
Many of the galleries feature a musical accompaniment, and the exhibition includes films, slideshows and an incredible projection of the famous ceiling of the Paris Opera, which Chagall completed in 1964. This close-up view allows us to appreciate the splendour of this monumental decor and view details that are normally not visible to the naked eye.
This exhibit is ideal for anyone who has a fond appreciation for history music and art.
