Donation offers to the McCord Museum for the ‘La Cathédrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde ’ photo

November 26, 2012

The Italian-Canadian Community Foundation has the great pleasure and honour of announcing that the McCord Museum is hosting the “Villes sublimes/Sublime Cities” exhibit.  Photographer Mimmo Jodice’s collection of works will be on display at the museum until March 3, 2013. 

Mimmo Jodice’s works honour the important artistic form of photography, and have given Italy an important place on the current international artistic scene.  It is therefore with immense pride that the ICCF has decided to support this exhibit.

Mimmo Jodice’s photography is much more than simply a descriptive medium, it is a truly creative and imaginative tool.  It is this vision which has allowed the artist to create unique works, characterized by their exceptional cultural qualities and their impressive ability to merge class and innovation. 

The museum’s visitors will have the chance to enjoy these exclusive photos, which were taken in Montreal during the artist’s stay in the city last spring.  The resulting series of 10 photos has captured the essence of our city and immortalized it.  The FCCI is proud to announce that it has granted a donation to the McCord Museum, aiding the institution to acquire the « La Cathédrale Marie-Reine-du-Monde» photo. The ICCF considers this work to be an important part of Montreal’s cultural heritage and therefore believes that it should be held in the archives of the McCord Museum, along with other works from great Italian artists.
