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.
