Historical Curiosity

On the 375th anniversary Montréal Museums Day, enjoy a rally of unusual objects displayed specially for the occasion at 43 Montréal museums. Have fun trying to spot them – just look for the MTL Museums symbol near these curiosities from the city’s past.

2013. A “power play” gift

The Power Points exhibition was a huge success. In its Canadian premiere at DHC/ART, artist Cory Arcangel showed how software and electronic gadgets quickly become outdated, and questioned the concept of authorship. And he had another surprise in store: to thank the technical crew from the Foundation for Contemporary Art, all huge Montréal Canadiens fans, Arcangel ordered a gift for them on eBay: a seat from the old Montreal Forum.
