A Crack in Everything: Discover contemporary art while exploring the world of Leonard Cohen

In Digitization, Education, Innovation



A veritable audiovisual immersion into the world of Leonard Cohen, this virtual exhibition establishes a dialogue between his oeuvre and contemporary art. The universality of Cohen’s predominant themes (Poetic Thought; Spirituality & Humility; Love; Loss & Longing) illuminate his poetry and vast musical repertoire. Here, a wealth of documentation provides access to artworks and audio and video content, songs, poems, interviews and self-portraits, further deepening the essence of his work. Come visit the exhibition in person at the fairgrounds or explore the virtual exhibition through your phone or computer.


The project is part of the cultural program of Canada’s Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021 and is supported by Telefilm Canada.

The MAC thanks the Leonard Cohen Family Trust for their collaboration in the realization of this project, produced with the support of Digital Museums Canada and Québec’s digital cultural plan.
