A gallery layout designed to feature some 600 works
Expanding the Museum’s total gallery space by 20%, over two thousand square metres are devoted to the exhibition of Quebec and Canadian art! The addition to the church finally makes it possible to display the full breadth of the Museum’s extraordinary collections of early and modern Canadian art, with hundreds of works to be discovered (or rediscovered) on view.
This heritage collection presents some six hundred works chronologically, from the top level downwards, within a gallery layout conceived by designer Daniel Castonguay. Each of the pavilion’s six levels spotlights a historical period in a distinctive way, now providing, for the first time, a more in-depth understanding and appreciation of Quebec and Canadian art.
