This week we were honored to be part of the opening of the Leonard Cohen exhibit — Une brèche en toute chose/A Crack in Everything — at Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC), where Hallelujah will be available through April of 2018. The exhibit was concepted as part of the city’s 375th anniversary celebrations and has been in the works for nearly three years with Leonard’s approval. It’s an incredibly diverse and beautiful homage to a man and city that are so proud of each other.
The idea for what ultimately became Hallelujah was something director Zach Richter and creators Bobby Halvorson and Eames Kolar were concepting for nearly all of 2016. The stars aligned for us to partner with Zach and the team at Within on the project, and we were days away from actual production when the news of Cohen’s passing hit just over a year ago.
When we started this process, none of us could have dreamed for such an extraordinary home for Hallelujah. We are incredibly proud and honored to have it at the MAC, among such exceptional artists and their work during an extremely meaningful celebration.
