Les Printemps du MAC Committee is dedicated to introducing the MAC to a new generation of leaders. It has a dual mission: firstly, to raise awareness of both contemporary art among this group, and the important role the MAC plays in preserving and promoting this heritage across Quebec, Canada and at the international level. Secondly, it aims to encourage support for the continued development of the MAC.

Les Printemps du Mac 2016: NÉO

For its 10th edition, the Printemps du MAC will celebrate its renaissance. A renaissance implies something new, but also something already established, because anything that is reborn has already lived. Néo celebrates this contradiction. Through the duality of Ragnar Kjartansson and the eclectic nature of Ryan Gander, welcome the equinox with us by embracing the paradox.
