It is now Prince's turn to be the subject of a multidisciplinary exhibition at Place des Arts' Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme. Fans of the great musician will have the opportunity to relive his story and discover his legacy through His Purple Majesty, a brand-new exhibition about the legendary artist.
Prince's life and career will be revealed by Duke Eatmon, a musicologist renowned for his knowledge and passion for the legendary artist. A true living encyclopedia, this Black History Month laureate has, among other pursuits, developed the Prince & the Purple Revolution course at McGill University and a class on the history of African- American music at Concordia University.
Duke Eatmon will provide visitors with a portrait of Prince's musical legacy, his cultural impact on society, and his influence on fashion. He will also discuss themes dear to the artist: spirituality, sexuality and the influences on the man himself. Duke Eatmon has searched his archives to find unique objects that enhance these stories. The exhibition also features an artistic component directed by Kevin Calixte and Félicité Mvioki. Through their works, artists Chopin Joseph, Floriane Koudnoukpo, Niti Marcelle Mueth, Olivier Léogane and Omar Gammaoui will pay vivid homage to Prince.
