View of the exhibition Motion – Emotion, 2018.

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) presents Motion – Emotion, an emotionally evocative exhibition themed on the violence of the elements. This is the first-ever solo exhibition of Jean-Michel Othoniel in Canada, and it presents recent works by the world-renowned French artist. The elements and the shapes of nature have always been a source of inspiration for Othoniel. Here, however, the artist has selected sculptures and paintings that depart from a feeling of wonderment and reflect instead his preoccupying concern for the environment in works with a darker side.
