Gifts

The Musée has been able to build an absolutely remarkable collection, largely thanks to the generosity of donors, artists, collectors, businesspeople and the general public. The funds collected by the museum also help finance its exhibitions and educational activities.

Gifts of Artworks

The Collection of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal comprises more than 7,600 works, illustrating the major trends in Québec, Canadian and international art. It has grown, and continues to grow, through both gifts (40% of acquisitions) and purchases (60% of acquisitions). To remain a key player in the contemporary art world, the museum must be a major buyer on the Québec and world scenes. Building the Collection is one of its main priorities.

To do this, the museum relies on donors’ generosity. Their knowledge and taste play a part in enriching the Collection. The museum applies the same strict standards to accepting gifts as it does when it purchases works.

At the Musée, Suzanne Lemire is in charge of donations. She can answer your questions about the museum’s acquisition procedures or about the tax benefits accruing from gifts and bequests of artworks.
