one of the most important historical collections in North America,
and presents stimulating exhibitions as well as educational and
cultural activities with a contemporary perspective on history. In

This fascinating exhibition bears witness
to the still unrecognized knowledge of Indigenous peoples, the
deep wounds they carry and their incredible resilience Indigenous
Voices of Today presents about one hundred carefully
selected objects from the museum’s Indigenous Cultures collection as
well as more than 80 powerful inspiring stories, told by text and
video, from members of the 11 Indigenous nations of Quebec. As part
of an effort to initiate dialogue and foster understanding, the
exhibition offers an opportunity for a meaningful encounter.
Founded in Montreal in 1977 by designer
Nicola Pelly and architect and urban planner Harry Parnass, the
Parachute brand became a phenomenon on the international fashion
scene, with celebrity clients such as Madonna, Duran Duran and
Subversive Fashion of the ‘80s highlights the
androgynous, avant-garde creations of Parachute, while looking
back at the brand’s transformation.
Starting December 3, the Enchanted
Worlds exhibit at the McCord Museum brings the
magic of the Ogilvy Christmas mechanical windows back to life.
Since 1947, these windows have delighted Montrealers with their
Bavarian scenes featuring a multitude of handcrafted animals.
Similar to other department stores around the world, such as
Macy's in New York, these window displays are among the last of
their kind in North America. They were donated to the McCord
Museum in order to preserve the continuity of this symbolic
Montreal tradition. The two displays, called The Enchanted
Village and The Mill in the Forest, are sure to
amaze onlookers. Share this delightful experience on social
media with #McCordMuseum!
