Adrift, a poetic installation on Du Musée Avenue
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is proud to have presented Adrift, a creation by Collectif Incognito featured on Du Musée Avenue in summer 2021.
Inspired by the exhibitions Riopelle: The Call of Northern Landscapes and Indigenous Cultures and Ecologies: A Song for Our Planet, this installation invited passersby to set themselves “adrift” in town and be carried off by a stream as formidable in nature as it is fragile, in an environment that reclaims its rightful place at the very heart of a city.
This creative undertaking provided a fitting opportunity for the MMFA Foundation to recognize the remarkable generosity of donors. On the art installation site, a panel was inscribed with the names of all those who supported the MMFA's 2020-2021 annual fundraising campaign by making a donation of $200 or more. Some of them signed their own personal messages of hope, further adding to the touching spirit of the installation. Their support is crucial and we extend our most sincere thanks to them.

Since the MMFA is not a government-run museum, it must generate its own revenue to cover most of its operating budget as well as its acquisitions of artworks.
To ensure sound governance and the best possible performance, the MMFA Foundation adheres to the values of commitment, excellence, solidarity, respect and integrity.
