The project :
Since 1925, The New Yorker has been one of the symbols for freedom of the press and political stance. Combining reports, reviews, essays, comics, poetry and fiction, the magazine is particularly famous for its covers.
Their evocative power, both creative and original, is unique and mark the collective imagination. The illustrations are created by artists of various styles and from all walks of life. Designers from Montreal, Paris and Tokyo had carte blanche to design the cover of an imaginary magazine: Le Montréaler, The Parisianer and The Tokyoiter.
Through this exhibition, we invite you to discover the works of more than 150 artists paying a tribute to the New Yorker and to their home city.
For Montreal, 10 texts from contemporary writers complete the discovery of the city and ten covers of the real The Montréaler magazine (1926 -1970) are presented thanks to the support of MGill University.
