Silent large-scale projections on Silo no 5

As part of the exhibition Leonard Cohen – Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything, the MAC will light up Silo no 5.

For Leonard Cohen (Pour Leonard Cohen) is a series of large-scale light projections on one of Montréal’s most iconic architectural structures. The installation features phrases from Cohen’s poems and songs, projected in both French and English. This unique and ephemeral work will be visible for five nights only, starting on November 7, the first anniversary of Cohen’s death, and going until November 11.

Montrealers are invited to commemorate and celebrate Leonard Cohen at this free event.

Jenny Holzer is an American artist. She has projected light onto buildings and landscapes since the early 1990s, creating large-scale, text-based installations, which seek to illuminate and reveal.

Opening: Tuesday, November 7, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m, Silo no. 5
Join us at the corner of McGill and de la Commune in Old Montréal.

Artist: Jenny Holzer
Production of the video: CBC/Radio-Canada
