The Fondation du MAC is pleased to invite you to the 2023 edition of the Collectors Symposium National Bank Private Banking 1859. Under the honorary co-chairmanship of Mrs Stella Vassallo and Mr. Vincent Chiara, this benefit event aims to encourage dialogue and reflection.

The Symposium, hosted by presenter Éric Bujold, offers the experience of an acquisition committee. During a gourmet dinner, discover three works specially exhibited for the occasion and engage in discussions with guests as well as curators before voting for the work that will be acquired for the MAC collection. Hosted by Eva Hartling, this event provides an opportunity to discover or rediscover contemporary art and the museum collection process.


This unique evening will take place starting at October 17 2023, 6:00 PM at the Galerie Bradley Ertaskiran. Tickets are priced at $1,250 (a tax receipt will be provided for the eligible portion). The funds raised during the evening will contribute to the acquisition of the chosen artwork.


Seating is limited, and we encourage you to make reservations without delay.
