Throughout the ages and in every culture, the subject of the human face has provided inspiration for countless artists. Leonard Cohen was no exception to this artistic tendency, as is eloquently illustrated by the extensive series of self-portraits he produced. Visitors to this presentation of works, being shown for the first time, will notice that the subject of the artist’s face comes to take precedence over its visual expression; it becomes the scene of constant variation and fuels his fertile imagination.
In this workshop, participants will each be invited to try out the wide range of artistic approaches used by Cohen as they produce a series of self-portraits made up of lines, combined with shapes, set off by colours and accompanied by words with a poetic quality.
December 27, 28 and January 3, 4 at 1:30 p.m. or 2:30 p.m.

About Workshop/Tour Combos
The Workshop/Tour Combo is the ideal way to make the most of a visit to the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. Lasting two hours, it includes an Interactive Tour of the exhibition followed by an Art Workshop based on one of the works on display.
By personally observing works of art and then engaging in a creative activity, students combine both “seeing” and “doing.” The activity arouses students’ curiosity about contemporary art practices while at the same time fostering their own creativity through the discovery and observation of original works.
