A record for the return of this flagship event

September 17, 2022, more than 950 personalities from the arts and business community gathered to celebrate contemporary art for the benefit of the Fondation du MAC. More than $1,000,000 net was raised during this festive and colorful evening held at the Salada Market, Royalmount, which is a record amount for the event. After a two-year absence, the Bal du MAC was back under the theme Idyll, a theme rich in transparency and light.

The Fondation du MAC was able to count on several exceptional partners who contributed greatly to the success of the evening. The Fondation would like to thank the Sandra and Alain Bouchard Foundation, a major donor for the evening, for its generous contribution. This event, undoubtedly one of the most popular of the season, allows the Fondation du Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal to donate funds to the Museum to support the various educational activities of the MAC, to enrich the Museum’s Collection, to promote the influence of Québec artists and to present some of the most prestigious international artists of the moment in Montréal.

Under the co-chairmanship of Marie-Claude Dumas (WSP Canada), Geneviève Turbide-Potvin (National Bank) and Valery Zamuner (Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc.), the 2022 edition of the Bal du MAC was able to count on a dedicated and committed organizing committee composed of Marie-Josée Simard (committee chair), Elizabeth Camiré, Violette Cohen, Josée Dufresne, François Lachance, Stéphanie Larivière, Patricia Lemaire and Cathy Samson.
