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 thirteen 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 Janet Werner, Skawennati, Onkweshòn:’a, Etienne Zack, Dil Hildebrand, Valérie Blass, Ed Pien, Adrian Paci, Pierre Dorion, Michel de Broin, Nicolas Baier, Hito Steyerl and Jessica Eaton, among others.
