REVOLUTION is a musical odyssey that explores the ideals and aspirations of the late 1960s as expressed in music, film, fashion and design.
The exhibition looks at the consumer society, Vietnam War protests, the civil rights movement, the sexual revolution, experimentation with LSD, legendary concerts, communal living and environmentalism.
Wearing high-fidelity headphones that synchronize the sounds and images according to their location in the galleries, visitors will embark on an immersive journey to London streets, where fashion never ceases to reinvent itself; to the heart of the May 1968 demonstrations in Paris; to the Summer of Love in San Francisco; to Woodstock; to the L’Osstidcho; and to Montreal’s Expo 67.
About 700 objects and works of art bear witness to the social and cultural climate of the times with, as a soundtrack, musical hits of the era from around the world and Quebec, with excerpts from seminal films and interviews with iconic figures.
Flower Power and rebellion through music kick off the summer at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, with a special focus on the roles of Montreal and Expo 67 in these revolutions.
