One of the greatest music stars of all time is being celebrated at Montreal’s Place des Arts in honour of Black History Month.

Prince: His Purple Majesty is an exhibition dedicated to the legendary artist. Prince’s life and musical career is explored by musicologist Duke Eatmon.

Eatmon is considered an expert on Prince. Described as a “true living encyclopedia”, Eatmon developed the Prince & the Purple Revolution course at McGill University and a class on the history of African- American music at Concordia University.

Eatmon will guide visitors on a journey of Prince’s life and musical career while discussing the artist’s cultural impact on society, and his influence on fashion.

The exhibit contains items from Eatmon’s personal archives that are directly connected to Prince.

Prince: His Purple Majesty also includes an artistic component directed by Kevin Calixte and Félicité Mvioki.

Prince: His Purple Majesty is on display until March 3 at Espace culturel Georges-Émile-Lapalme at Place des Arts.
