[Metro] Leonard Cohen Artworks - free exhibition till May 9 - MONTREAL

FROM February 18 to May 9, 2010

Maison du Festival Rio Tinto Alcan

Leonard Cohen Artworks


Come visit the exhibition of sketches and drawings of the great poet, songwriter and singer Leonard Cohen. Self-portraits annotated in his own hand, nudes and female portraits, and everyday objects invite the viewer to share an intimate moment with this extraordinary Montreal creative force who have seduced audiences the world over for forty years.

For the first time in Montreal, the Galerie Lounge TD has the great privilege of presenting the visual artworks of Leonard Cohen. Poet, novelist, and singer-songwriter, for four decades this Montreal prodigy has been captivating the world over with his powerful lyrics, timeless melodies and enveloping voice.

Cohen, who in his own words says he "decorates his notebooks," has in fact been drawing relentlessly since the early days of his career. His drawings, which he never intended to exhibit, are composed and annotated spontaneously with no restraint and with a sense of humour. Recently, however, he agreed to show his artwork to the general public, who can now discover yet another facet of his boundless creativity.
