Peru: Kingdoms of the Sun and the Moon
From February 2 to June 16, 2013
Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal
1380, rue Sherbrooke Ouest
The vitality of this institution continues to impress me! Over the last two years alone, there have been two major openings: the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec & Canadian Art, to be discovered and rediscovered, and the Michel de la Chenelière Art & Education Studios, an ideal spot for family outings.
The Museum’s program is superb. I very much enjoyed The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier—an international triumph—and I will soon go to see Peru: Kingdom of the Sun and the Moon, a magnificent exhibition of the treasures and masterpieces of a rich civilization, from the pre-Columbian era to 20th century Indigenism.
