Les Printemps du MAC 2017: JANGALA

The 11th annual Printemps du MAC was held on Friday, April 21, with Élaine Barsalou, Managing Director, National Bank Financial, as honorary president.

The goal of the benefit evening was to raise the Musée’s profile among the up-and-coming generation and make young professionals more aware of contemporary art and works. The exclusive cocktail party attracted about a 1000 people who enjoyed cultural and gastronomic discoveries, live music and prizes offered courtesy of our partners.

On the theme of Jangala, the sold-out event took place in a Musée that had been turned into a tropical jungle. Throughout the evening, guests were welcome to visit the exhibitions of Emanuel Licha and Teresa Margolles and view many works from the Musée’s permanent collection.

The Fondation du Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal gratefully thanks the organizing committee co-chairs, Alexandra Mohsen (National Bank) and Stefanie Stergiotis (Stingray), and all the committee members: Alexandra De Roy (SNC Lavalin), Ariane Bisaillon (Blakes), Bisma Ansari (Mega Brands), Catherine Plourde (De Granpré Joli-Cœur), Effie Giannou (EGS Group), Geneviève Sharp (EGS Group), Luana Ann Church (Québecor Média), Lysandre Laferrière (Gowling WLG), Marie-Ève Gingras (Torys), Marie-Josée Therrien (BDC), Marion-Isabelle Muszynski (Valtech), Maude N. Béland (UQAM), Robert Alexander Quinn (Bright Future), Shady Ahmad (Budge Studio) and Virginie Bourgeois (Danone Waters).

Les Printemps du MAC

Les Printemps du MAC Committee is dedicated to introducing the MAC to a new generation of leaders. It has a dual mission: firstly, to raise awareness of both contemporary art among this group, and the important role the MAC plays in preserving and promoting this heritage across Quebec, Canada and at the international level. Secondly, it aims to encourage support for the continued development of the MAC.
