1. Rodin Exhibition, Musée des Beaux Arts

This exhibition, currently at the Musée des Beaux Arts, features the work of 19th century French sculptor Auguste Rodin. He was particularly known for his statues, which are famously expressive.

2. David Altmejd Exhibition, Musée d'Art Contemporain

3. Jon Rafman Exhibition, Musée d'Art Contemporain

Canadian artist Jon Rafman, who is also currently showing at Musée d'Art Contemporain, uses various artistic media to explore the effects of the internet and technology use in the 21st century. Video games and social media are among his main inspirations.
