Located in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles, the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal makes today’s art a vital part of Montréal and Québec life.
For more than fifty years, this vibrant museum has brought together local and international artists, their works and an ever growing public. It is a place of discovery, offering visitors experiences that are continually changing and new, and often unexpected and stirring.
Through its exhibitions, artistic performances and festive events, the MAC provides a window onto a myriad of avant-garde expressions that spread the reach of art throughout the city and beyond.
Canada’s premier museum dedicated exclusively to contemporary art, the MAC is committed to demonstrating the fundamental role played by contemporary art in our society. To achieve this, it offers visitors a range of artistic and educational activities that familiarize the general public with contemporary art. With a history that already spans half a century, the Musée pursues its mission with ever greater conviction: to make known, promote and preserve Québec contemporary art and ensure a place for international contemporary art through acquisitions, exhibitions and other activities.
