Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything

Jewish Museum, New York

NOW CLOSED

With songs, poems and novels that give voice to the desires both of spirit and flesh, Cohen has inspired countless other musicians, writers and artists. In this touring exhibition, contemporary artists including Tacita Dean, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller and Candice Breitz present works that pay homage to the ‘high priest of pathos’, in media ranging from film to installation and sound art. Find out more from the Jewish Museum’s website.
