Travelling Exhibition

From May 12 to September 17, 2017

La ville suspendue

The McCord Museum Tells the Stories of Montreal

The McCord Museum has created La ville suspenduean exhibition-installation that will travel across Montreal during summer 2017 to bring residents and visitors a slice of Montreal’s past along with the unique history of each district and moving stories from Montrealers.

Old and contemporary photos and the personal narratives of residents will change to highlight the specific characteristics of each of the 19 visited boroughs. The city’s different faces and its development will therefore become chapters in the larger story of this travelling installation.

A flagship event of the official programming for Montreal’s 375th anniversary, designed and produced by the McCord Museum.
