MUSÉE D’ART CONTEMPORAIN > To Jan. 7: “Neo Rauch.”
The German artist (born 1960) has developed a figurative pictorial idiom in which dreamlike objects rival elements drawn from various visual worlds – comic strips, advertising and German culture. The show only offers eight paintings, but their ambiguous interpretation will likely trigger the viewer’s attention.  www.macm.org

MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS > To Jan. 21: “Girodet, Romantic Rebel.” This is the final venue for the retrospective of the works of Louis-Anne Girodet (1767-1824) that has already toured Paris, Chicago and New York with about 130 paintings and works on paper. Although his style remained recognizably influenced by Jacques-Louis David, Girodet is considered one of the important figures in early Romanticism. Through his works, he took a stand on the leading issues of his period (the French Revolution and its Napoleonic aftermath).  www.mmfa.qc.ca

ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO > To Jan. 21: “Ansel Adams.”
A commercial photographer for 30 years, Adams (1902-1984) remains well-known in particular for his visionary images of landscapes in the American West. The exhibition brings together about 120 images acquired directly from the artist by a couple of private collectors.  www.ago.net

ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM > To Jan. 7: “Italian Arts and Design: The 20th Century.” Attesting to the many achievements in design that took place in Italy and that led to international industrial design, the exhibition investigates the connections between experimentation in fine art and innovative industrial design. About 300 objects ranging from furniture and glass to textiles and ceramics as well as paintings, sculpture, photography and architectural drawings are on display.  www.rom.on.ca
