My Favourite Museum Exhibitions From 2022

I visited a couple of museum exhibitions last year and really enjoyed them. Here are the ones that stood out in order (from my favourite to my least favourite ones)!

Van Gogh – “Distorsion” at OASIS IMMERSION

The most beautiful, interesting, and captivating digital exhibition. Van Gogh is my favourite painter, so this exhibit was important to me in some way. I never miss anything about him, even when I’m traveling (I saw one of his digital exhibitions in Paris and got emotional lol). I didn’t have any expectations for this one because I didn’t want to be disappointed, but I was, on the contrary, pleasantly surprised and joyful, like a child in a toy store. Every section of the exhibition was purposeful, well-thought, and meaningful, exploring different aspects of Van Gogh’s painting style and letters he wrote to his brother. The coolest part was how the floor was interactive in one of the rooms. In fact, as you were walking, some parts of the paintings displayed moved with you, or followed you. However, what I loved the most was the display of not only his self-portraits, but of other people he’d represent. They weren’t elite, nor rich people, but ordinary people from all walks of life, and it felt like I could see myself in any of them. Needless to say, this exhibition was one of my 2022 highlights.

This exhibition is still ongoing. For more info, click here.


The Broad: Basquiat, Lichtenstein, Warhol, Kusama, Koons & more

The only exhibit on the list that I did not see in Montreal, but in Los Angeles. It was a bucket-list item, and I’m so happy I got to do it. I saw some of the artworks I studied in CEGEP in real life, and I was in awe!

Frida Kahlo – “The Life of an Icon” at Arsenal art contemporain Montréal

I went to see this one with one of my best friends. We are both not only greatly inspired by Frida’s art, but also by her personality and story. The interactive exhibition succeeded in presenting Frida the person and Frida the artist. My favourite parts: 1) having some time to colour Frida’s portraits 2) immersing myself in Frida Kahlo’s imaginative and colourful world with the virtual reality technology. In sum, it was a very modern, fun, and techy exhibition.
