“How long does it take for one voice to reach another?” explores the concept of the voice in both its physical and metaphorical registers, asking through art, what it is to find meaningful connection after the long period of isolation we have just come through.

This weekend is your last chance to see this MMFA main Fall exhibit that highlights major works in the Museum’s permanent collection that touch on subjects that have affected us all over the past year: love and loss, separation and reconciliation, listening and the desire to be heard.

Spanning multiple centuries and cultures, the exhibition juxtaposes rarely seen Pre-Columbian objects and Persian manuscripts, as well as Old Master paintings and works by Modern and Contemporary artists of diverse backgrounds.

It features new acquisitions being displayed for the first time at the Museum as well as several important loans from Canadian collections, both institutional and private.
