If you want a Friday night that is intellectual stimulating, classy, and cool, keep your eye out for the Nocturne at the Montreal Contemporary Art Museum (MAC). Four times a year on Fridays, the MAC keeps its galleries open late and invites in DJs and cocktail makers. With five exhibits on the walls — Patrick Bernatchez’s Les Temps inachevés, Dana Schutz, Camile Henrot: Grosse Fatigue, L’Oeil et l’Esprit, and Nouveautés et autres obsessions, there was something for everyone up at the latest Nocturne. Patrick Bernatchez even came for a performance at 7 p.m. and there was even an art-making workshop taking place until midnight. On decks were Stéphane Cocke, Ryan Otis, and Body Meta. If you missed the event, Sebastian Mora hit the galleries with his camera so you can feel like you were there and mark you calendar so you don’t miss the next Nocturne on February 19.
