Gabor Szilasi: The Art World

Photographs of Montreal Art Openings, 1960-1980

This exhibition of unpublished photographs by Gabor Szliasi (born 1928) features images from art openings and other artistic events held in Montreal between 1960 and 1980. Shot in a spontaneous documentary style, they immortalize the people, places and vitality of Montreal’s art scene at a time of social and cultural upheaval.

Although Szilasi is one of Quebec’s best-known living photographers, this significant aspect of his work has never been publicly displayed.

Not to be missed!
