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.
