The MAC invites the public to the opening of the sound installation Autophonie, developed by artist Cédric Chabuel in collaboration with high school students as part of two artist residency programs through Centre Turbine to create dynamic artworks inspired by the life of Leonard Cohen. The work has two components, a recording booth in a converted phone booth where guests can share their own stories and memories, and a listening station in the form of a 1963 Chevrolet Impala parked just outside the museum, with a radio playing recordings produced for the project, which will also be streamed on radio. 185 Ste-Catherine W., 5–8 p.m., museum admission $19/$12 students
