On Friday, April 29, members of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Foundation’s ANGEL CIRCLE and their guests enjoyed an exclusive evening of celebration centered on the exhibition Nicolas Party : L’heure mauve.
An event inspired by nature’s palette, it included a themed cocktail, hors d’oeuvres, a 360° spin video booth that offered a unique experience by capturing slow-motion video instantly (which you can see a good example of at the bottom of this article)…
…an art workshop to immerse oneself in Nicolas Party’s creative approach, as well as surprises such as dance and acrobatic performances by The 7 Fingers troupe.
This evening, sponsored by Broccolini, was a wonderful opportunity for participants to meet the artist in person…
…as everyone delighted in the festivities with the chill house music of DJ Stéphane Cocke.
The L’heure mauve (Mauve Twilight) exhibition was accessible thereafter in order for them to admire.
A major artist of our time, born in Switzerland, Nicolas Party is known for his meticulously composed paintings, his painted sculptures and his installations drenched in saturated colours.
Through over 100 works and a series of large-scale murals realized on site, he unveils a dreamlike exhibition themed on nature at the MMFA, from February 12 to October 16, 2022.
What is the Angel Circle?
Founded in 2016 by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Foundation, the philanthropic goal of the Angel Circle is to support the presentation of major exhibitions and make the Museum more accessible for underprivileged families. Through joining the Circle, a member enjoys building strong relationships with outgoing individuals who want to stay abreast of new trends in art, design and music.
The majority of Circle members are entrepreneurs and experienced professionals who share the same interests, including a great passion for culture.
Activities for members are intended to provide them with experiences that no other visitor can benefit from, including the unique experience of visiting the art restoration laboratories and exclusive encounters with artists, curators, collectors and philanthropists.
