Montreal Through the Eyes of Vittorio
50 Years of City Life and Graphic Design
The works of internationally celebrated Italian-born poster artist Vittorio Fiorucci, who helped brand the landscape of Montreal for generations, bear witness to almost a half century of life in his adopted city.
Vittorio’s highly distinguishable art is defined by his simple shapes, vibrant colours, enigmatic characters and playfulness. More than 125 posters, photos, illustrations and comic strips take visitors on a journey through the cultural and social milestones of our city from the 1960s to the end of the 20th century.

What people are saying about it
« The McCord exhibition, curated by Marc H. Choko is outstanding: and it is indeed a reflection of Montreal through the eyes of this multi-dimensional artist. » Peter Kerr, The Montrealer
« Vittorio’s artwork is a testimony to liberation and his open-minded lifestyle. The vibrant colours interact in a playful and meaningful way for the viewer, and this exhibit is a lovely way to honor his lifetime of achievement. Vittorio believed in the power of embracing his inner child, and he invites viewers to do the same. » Miray Eroglu, The McGill Tribune
