Connections: Our Artistic Diversity Dialogues with Our Collections
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation, the MMFA has invited seven artists representing our cultural persity to create a work that is inspired by its collection of global cultures. Emerging or established artists are invited to create a work representing trans-historical and contemporary dialogue in connection with the MMFA’s collection of Ancient African, Asian, Mediterranean, Oriental and pre-Columbian art. The laureates of the competition will be announced shortly. The creations will be unveiled as a prelude to the new wing dedicated to world cultures and coexistence. This major reorganization of the collections is planned for 2019 on the upper level of the Jean-Noël Desmarais pavilion.
