“POETRY IS JUST THE EVIDENCE OF LIFE,”
Leonard Cohen once observed. And now, a year after his passing, as murals depicting his image tower over his hometown of Montreal, the city’s Musée d’art contemporain honours the troubadour with Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything ( www.macm.org). Conceived with Cohen’s blessing, the multimedia exhibition celebrates his cultural impact with music, art installations and off-site exhibits. As well, Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen – a November concert featuring Sting, k.d. lang, Leonard’s son Adam Cohen and other luminaries – airs on CBC on Jan. 3.
