Aside from key works such as Suspended Ball, Pointing Man and the celebrated Walking Man, to name but a few, that are part of the impressive body of more than 230 objects from the Fondation’s varied collection and major European collections, the exhibition highlights 110 sculptures, 50 paintings and 70 drawings and archival documents assembled for this unique exhibition. It showcases the artist’s early work in Paris in the 1920s up to his crowning achievements in the 1960s, a brilliant career that spanned five decades.

Berthe Morisot: Woman Impressionist

-June 21st To September 23rd 2018: Co-organized by the four institutions, Berthe Morisot, Woman Impressionist will focus on the artist’s figure paintings and portraits through approximately 50 to 60 paintings from both public institutions and private collections. This tour will be the first dedicated presentation of Morisot’s work to be held in the United States since 1987, the very first solo exhibition of her work to be mounted in Canada, and the first time since 1941 that a French national museum will devote a monographic show to this important painter.

Hand Made

-June 14th To September 3rd 2018: The exhibition seeks to draw visitors’ attention to the question of artistic practice as it relates to popular practices, a recurrent dimension of contemporary art in recent years. The exhibition will make the connection between the output of Canadian artists who, while their work presents diversified themes and contents, all come from popular backgrounds without, however, drawing from them sources or references, but their own approach. Such an approach is likely to enlighten the public. It thus underpins practice that hinges on artisanal processes, a mastery of the material, and imagery that is wrongly perceived as superficial. Accordingly, works ranging from direct cutting to digital textile will evoke notions of know-how, reskilling, highbrow and lowbrow, and making and having made.

Marcel Barbeau – En Mouvement

-October 11th 2018 To January 6th 2019: This major exhibition, the most ambitious ever dedicated to the artist, encompasses his entire career, from the late 1940s to his last work (2015). A notable figure in contemporary Canadian art, Marcel Barbeau produced an impressive body of more than 4,000 works spanning seven decades. Intersecting several significant periods in the history of recent art, his output provides an overview as singular as it is insightful.

350 Years of Artistic Practices In Québec

-October 15th 2018 To November 15th 2019:  In keeping with changes in museology and society’s current perception of its heritage, the MNBAQ wishes to highlight the individuals who have shaped the history of Québec art. Sustained by visual culture, the history of cultural life, gender and postcolonial studies, 350 Years of Artistic Practices in Québec seeks to offer a bold synthesis of the history of visual culture, from New France to the counterculture of the 1960s.

From Ferron to BGL/ Contemporary Art In Quebec – Any time.

This exhibition presents more than 60 key works from 1960 to today by essential figures in the history of Québec art. In the wake of the redefinition of Quebec identity brought about by the Quiet Revolution, art in Québec went through unprecedented upheavals, whose range of repercussions this retrospective look will enable us to grasp. Work by well-known artists, major events and artistic movements will thus be put in perspective in a unique presentation employing astonishing associations. Complemented by historical information and contextual references, this innovative panorama of the history of contemporary art will reveal the mutual influences and shared sensibilities that have animated artists and the great currents of contemporary art.
