The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Eunice Bélidor as the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Curator of Quebec and Canadian Contemporary Art (1945 to Today). Bélidor’s multidisciplinary background in art and research will greatly benefit the Museum, its programming and its collection of Quebec and Canadian contemporary art.
“Eunice Bélidor has distinguished herself as a curator and a thought leader in her field, and I could not be happier to welcome her to the curatorial team of the MMFA. Her experience coupled with her interest in stimulating dialogue and in focusing on themes and discourses that are too often marginalized make her a tremendous asset for the MMFA. Her work will enrich our understanding of Quebec and Canadian art, and we are eager to discover the programming she will develop,” noted Mary-Dailey Desmarais, Chief Curator, MMFA.
“I’m delighted to be joining the Museum, a great institution of my native city of Montreal. This opportunity will allow me to pursue my work of supporting artists and promoting Quebec and Canadian contemporary art in Montreal, Canada and abroad. Becoming a curator at the MMFA marks an important step in my career, and I’m eager to dive into this new role. I have already been met with open arms by Mary-Dailey Desmarais and the entire Museum team, who share my sensibilities” added Eunice Bélidor, the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Curator of Quebec and Canadian Contemporary Art (1945 to Today), MMFA.
