A Glance at the Photography Collection at the McCord Museum:

Photographer Gabor Szilasi was born in Hungary in 1928 and immigrated to Canada in 1957. Soon after settling in Montreal, Szilasi began to photograph the many art openings that he regularly attended. Over the next few decades, he produced an extensive photographic record of the individuals that made up Montreal’s visual arts community, a number of whom would shape the history of art in Canada. The 1960s and 1970s saw a tremendous expansion and diversification of the scene. Szilasi’s images show the restrained elegance of the early 1960s giving way, by the end of the decade, to an atmosphere of unbridled enthusiam that, with the arrival of the 1970s, settles into a mood of relaxed irreverence.
