The MAC unveils its 2019 programming
Le Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) is pleased to announce its identity- and humanity-themed summer programming launching on June 20, which will explore some of the pressing issues of our time. The works of Québec and Canadian artists Rebecca Belmore, Nadia Myre, Chloé Lum and Yannick Desranleau will be presented throughout the summer, offering visitors unexpected discoveries and surprises. Performances, talks with artists and curators, interactive tours and a series of educational activities round up the program. Programming dedicated to media works and projections will be presented in the museum’s Beverly Webster Rolph room. Ragnar Kjartansson will open the show and occupy the entire space. The MAC is also excited to collaborate once again with MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image to welcome artist Francis Alÿs this fall, as part of the next Biennale.
“This will be a great summer for the MAC. I’m really happy about how we created a high-calibre program that’s imbued with poetry and brings up timely and crucial questions about human condition and the times we live in,” – John Zepetelli, Director and Chief Curator of the MAC.
The exhibition Rebecca Belmore: Facing the Monumental is organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and curated by Wanda Nanibush, Curator of Indigenous Art. The MAC presentation is organized by Lesley Johnstone, Curator and Head of Exhibitions and Education.
