MONTREAL, Feb. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - The Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal
is proud to join with the Montreal High Lights Festival in blowing out the
candles marking the event's 10th anniversary. The festivities the museum has
scheduled for the All-Nighter will begin on Saturday, February 28 at 6 p.m.
and run until 5 in the morning on Sunday, March 1.
The MAC has dreamed up a night that appeals to all the senses, starting
with sight, of course, with the exhibitions Claude Tousignant, A
Retrospective; The Collection: Some Installations (three major installations
by Christine Davis, Adad Hannah and Franz West) and the Projections series,
featuring films by Japanese-born artists Takashi Ishida and Yuki Kawamura.
There will be plenty to stimulate the senses of sound, motion, smell and
taste, as well. On the plaza outside the museum, NeoGrafik, in collaboration
with Mutek and the MAC, will project luminous graffiti on the walls of the
House of Jazz, and the mobile shelter Flexigloo will be the scene of street
entertainment at around 9:05 p.m., 12:20 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. Indoors, the
museum's atrium will rock with a mash-up atmosphere created by the
electrifying DJ Abeille Gélinas from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Instead of the
traditional birthday cake, the Musée and Grandbois Chocolatière are setting up
a chocolate "shop" in the foyer offering tastings of chocolates and chocolate
"espresso." A whole night's worth of excitement for festival-goers!
All night long, roam as you please through the museum's three floors and
its nine exhibition galleries. Apart from the chocolate (from $3 to $5), it's
