By taking up residence at PVM, a highly estimated and renown property, the MAC is particularly pleased to be able to remain active and present throughout the construction period, maintaining its relationship with the city and the downtown core, and its connection with its members and visitors, as well as with the Montreal community. Its temporary home in the Galerie PVM, right in the heart of downtown, will enable the MAC to offer its arts, education and events-related programming starting in late 2021.
“Having the MAC at PVM works perfectly with our desire to participate in the revitalization of the downtown core and move away from the traditional uses generally associated with office buildings. This means giving our community of occupants, tenants, and a much larger audience the opportunity to experience the MAC, a true local arts and culture symbol, in an unprecedented context.”

Interesting fact, Place Ville Marie was the venue for the MAC’s first exhibition – a retrospective on French artist Georges Rouault, in March 1965.
“I’m thrilled to establish this collaboration with Place Ville Marie and Ivanhoé Cambridge. In addition to being a place of historic architecture, it is ideally located and gives us the space we need to continue our activities. There is also something symbolic about being where everything started for the MAC. In a way, we are returning to our roots, while waiting for the start of its next big chapter.”
John Zeppetelli, Director and Chief Curator of the MAC
