Last year, we learned that an elaborate exhibition honouring Leonard Cohen would be opening in the late singer's hometown at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal (MAC). Now, more details of the upcoming project, dubbed Leonard Cohen – Une brèche en toute chose (or A Crack in Everything), have been revealed. The exhibition will open on November 9 - one year after Cohen's death - and run through April 9, 2018, as part of Montreal's official 375th anniversary programming.

An impressive lineup of musical contributors has just been announced as part of a gallery instalment that features new cover recordings of classic Cohen songs. That includes a joint recording by Chilly Gonzales and Jarvis Cocker who keep their recent creative collaboration alive alongside the Kaiser Quartet. Ariane Moffatt, meanwhile, will also contribute to the recording project with accompaniment from the Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal. The exhibition will also feature some of Cohen's original artwork along with new works from multidisciplinary artists, visual artists, performers, musicians, writers and filmmakers that highlight "the important literary and musical achievements of Leonard Cohen and the huge impact he had."
