For the first Nocturne of 2012, on Friday, February 3, and in keeping with the exhibition program spotlighting women artists, the Musée welcomes Misstress Barbara with Girls on a Ducati. An influential figure on the electronic music scene, with numerous productions released by some of the top international labels, the Italian-born Montrealer has earned an unstoppable reputation over the last sixteen years with her DJ sets at the most important clubs around the world. Accompanied by her group for her most recent LIVE project, Misstress Barbara trades her turntables for a microphone, keyboards and a guitar, and reveals yet other facets of her talent.

The capacity of the hall where the band will perform is limited due to a municipal by-law. Accordingly, not everyone can be accommodated inside the hall. However, the performance will be simulcast on two giant screens, next to the bar and on the exhibition gallery level, so that as many visitors as possible can enjoy the event.
