Miss Lanouch x MJM
Thu June 6, 2019 - Sun June 16, 2019
The Museum of Jewish Montreal is thrilled to announce this year’s muralist Miss Lanouch! For the second year in a row the Museum is participating in the summer mural festivities happening all along the Main. The Museum has invited emerging artist MissLanouch to paint “Mother’s Love”, a mural that speaks to what the artist views as one of women’s greatest strengths – a mother’s unconditional love for her children. Inspired by Miss Lanouch, the focus for the Museum’s MURAL Festival activities will be celebrating the ways we learn strength and empowerment from the women around us.
Miss Lanouch is a Montreal based artist of Beninese and Franco-Algerian descent. Through the exploration of human relationships, morphological diversity and body movement, her work takes a unique and personal approach in illustrating the cultural diversity that surrounds her. At the crossroads of cultures, Miss Lanouch redefines multiculturalism with the tip of her brush. Through her art, Miss Lanouch strives to highlight under-represented faces and untold stories. She establishes what unites us and what divides us; what we are and what we believe ourselves to be.
Come by between June 6-16 to check out the progress on Miss Lanouch’s mural at the corner of St-Dominique and Duluth, and while you’re here, stop by our booth in front of the Museum, where we’ll be serving refreshing snacks and drinks from Fletchers – Espace Culinaire and gifts from our boutique!
