MMFA exhibit talk on Peter Doig at the Côte Saint-Luc library

A guide from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) will present a lecture at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 7 pm about the museum’s new exhibit from Peter Doig’s called No Foreign Lands.

Born in Scotland, Doig later moved to Montreal where he spent his formative years and later returned for some years in his late 20s, eventually calling Trinidad home. The exhibit at the MMFA features a retrospective of Doig’s work and explores his connection to Montreal and his decision to later settle in Trinidad.  

“The exhibition covers Doig’s output since he settled in Trinidad in 2002, a turning point in his painting,” states the MMFA website on the exhibit. “It also reveals a previously unknown side of his art: the preparatory works, drawings and sketches that reveal the formal genius of this master colourist. The exhibition features a total of almost a hundred drawings and paintings as well as a wealth of personal documents.”

Admission for this program is free of charge and is open to members and non-members of the library.

The Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library is located at 5851 Cavendish Blvd. For more information, call the library at 514-485-6900 or visit www.csllibrary.org
