With its cobblestoned streets, atmospheric little restaurants, and the omnipresent Mount Royal Cross emanating luminosity every night, Montreal truly fulfills its reputation of being Canada’s most romantic city.
Now, until February 19, 2017, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Diversité Artistique Montréal co-presents an exhibition of photographs by Mikaël Theimer and Jacques Nadeau, celebrating the city’s passionate character. Montreal in Love: Embracing Diversity is a collection of portraits capturing 30 intercultural Montreal couples in sweet, personal moments. Part of the official programming to celebrate Montreal’s 375th anniversary, the exhibition intends to illustrate Montreal’s commitment to fostering inclusion and integration, and features video interviews with participating couples who share their thoughts on Canadian immigration and diversity.
“We Montrealers are made rich by our origins and our openness, and this exhibition is yet further proof of this,” Montreal mayor Denis Coderre stated upon the opening of Montreal in Love. Indeed, the exhibit paints a heartwarming picture of the city’s inhabitants, and offers a compelling glimpse into the relationships that collectively imbue Montreal with its romantic spirit.
Montreal in Love: Embracing Diversity runs at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts from January 18, 2017, to February 19, 2017.
