The MAC is…

The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) is Canada’s largest and most important museum dedicated to contemporary art. Not only is it a place of unexpected encounters, stirring discoveries and significant conversations, but also a place that reveals our society’s issues, enabling us to sense and ponder the world through art. The MAC has given each of us memories, feelings, meaningful moments and, each in our own way, we embody the MAC.

Our ambassadors are just like you: they share memories and unique histories with the MAC. Read what they have to say: Geneviève Cadieux, Clarence Epstein, Sophie Fouron, Francis Guindon, Nathon Kong, Martine St-Victor, Karen Tam and Serge Tousignant, along with Anne Lebel, General Director of the Foundation, and John Zeppetelli, Director and Chief Curator of the MAC.

If this institution that is a reflection of ourselves is to remain compelling, we need your support. You, too, can help the MAC flourish!

What about you? Show your support for the MAC today!

Your donation allows the MAC to carry on its mission to continually increase its impact within our community by offering more educational activities, more guided tours, more workshops, more exhibitions, and by acquiring more artworks. Your donations help us do more! Your support is essential: despite its status as a provincially owned museum, the MAC’s needs are great. You make it possible for everyone to share more memorable times and to make contemporary art flourish in our lives!

Between now and March 31, 2023, we want to get 1,000 donors to join the #MACommunauté. Nurture boldness, emotion, engagement, uniqueness, transformation, breath, amazement, the future, aspiration, daring. Nurture your vision of the MAC and donate now!

Please give what you can – size doesn’t matter: every donation counts!
