Exhibition Illusions: The Art of Magic at McCord Museum, from May 26th 2017 to January 7th 2018
Ladies and Gentlemen, step right up! Discover our new exhibition "Illusions: The Art of Magic" ! The exhibition takes on the period of magic shows’ golden age and its advertising and promotional mechanisms that relied on phantasmagoric imagery. A selection of breathtaking posters, mostly dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, retraces the social history of this still active phenomenon. These posters, halfway between art and advertisement, are magnificent, large format chromolithographs that immortalise the magicians and the acts that marked the world of modern magic.
