Montreal Museum of Fine Arts opens Dale Chihuly exhibition

Montreal Museum of Fine Arts presents Dale Chihuly an exhibition on view from June 8 to October 20, 2013.

the first major Dale Chihuly show to be presented in Canada – is organized by the MMFA in partnership with the Chihuly Studio. The SAQ and its “Adding Value to Glass” programme is the exhibition’s presenting sponsor in Montreal in collaboration with the Museum’s Volunteer Association.

Born in Tacoma in 1941, Chihuly is regarded as the “Tiffany” of our day and has been exploring the plastic potential of blown glass for over fifty years. With fire, gravity, breath and centrifugal force, this accomplished master plays with colours, reflections and organic forms, using repetition, accumulation and layering arrangements of modular and singular elements to create unparalleled rhythms and visual effects.
