Illusions: The Art of Magic is the world’s most comprehensive exhibition of posters featuring the magic, personalities, and history of master magicians from the Golden Age of Magic (1880s–1930s) ever assembled for public display.

Developed by the McCord Museum and drawn from its Allan Slaight Collection, one of the world’s largest collections of rare magic posters and Houdini material, the exhibition was curated by Christian Vachon, Curator, Paintings, Prints and Drawings, at the McCord Museum, in consultation with David Ben, a world-renowned master magician and magic specialist and collector.
