Collectors Symposium 2017

National Bank Private Wealth 1859

The eleventh edition of the Collectors Symposium, generously sponsored by National Bank Private Wealth 1859, will take place on Tuesday, November 14 at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.

Co-chaired by Julie Couture and Sara Joli-Coeur, this annual fundraising event for the MAC Foundation will invite 70 guests to enjoy an evening in the spirit of a museum’s acquisition committee, as well as a tour of the major exhibition Leonard Cohen: Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything. Members of the museum’s curatorial/senior artistic?? team will present works by three artists. Following the deliberations, one or more of these works will be added to the MAC Collection.

About the Collectors Symposium

The Collectors Symposium, presented by National Bank Private Banking 1859, was established to give participants an opportunity to share in the experience of sitting on an art acquisition committee. Much appreciated by art lovers and collectors, this unique evening also offers those less familiar with contemporary art a chance to discover contemporary works and the important role they play within a museum collection.

In the last eight years, the Symposium, which is closely aligned with the mission of both the Foundation and the museum, has allowed major works to be added to the MAC’s collection. The proceeds generated, notably thanks to the generous participation of National Bank, have enabled the museum to acquire pieces by Etienne Zack, Dil Hildebrand, Valérie Blass, Ed Pien, Adrian Paci, Pierre Dorion, Michel de Broin, Nicolas Baier, Hito Steyerl and Jessica Eaton, among others.
