We spent most of the time in Montreal with our daughter. In Montreal, I visited the Montreal Museum of Fine Art and the labs at the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer at the University of Montreal. Last but the least, we tried different cuisines.
Montreal Museum of Fine Art
One thing that impressed me is that Montreal people like to go to museums. This time was not exceptional, and I’ve not seen so many people in the museum. The highlight of this visit is Seeing Loud: Basquiat and Music, which is “the first large-scale multidisciplinary exhibition devoted to the role of music in the work of one of the most innovative artists of the second half of the 20th century”. The artist is Jean-Michel Basquiat from New York, but his work didn’t speak to me. Classical art, impressionism and early modern art echo better with me.
Research Labs at U of Montreal
I’m involved in a Canadian Cancer Society Breakthrough Grant Application by the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer at the University of Montreal. It’s a large research project which has basic research and clinical research. I’m honoured to be one of the grant applicants. Here are pictures of visiting two labs.
As usual, we explored different cuisines, tried two restaurants’ Iranian food and Greek food and, interestingly, tried several Jewish foods.
