The DART Board: 04.10.2019 - 04-10


That’s how the light gets in. Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything, continues through September 8 at The Jewish Museum. One of the highlights of this presentation organized the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC), is Passing Through by George Fok (2017), an immersive compilation of videos from throughout Cohen’s life. Projected on three walls of a sizeable gallery furnished with beanbag chairs and soft platforms, the piece envelops the audience in a time-travel journey through Cohen’s five-decade career. My text below is derived from this collage of collective memories, musical performances, and emotional moments.
