Gabor Szilasi: The Art World in Montreal, 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This exhibition of unpublished photographs by Gabor Szliasi (born 1928) features images from art openings and other artistic events held in Montreal between 1960 and 1980.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!
