The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is proud to have presented Niamh, a creation by the Montreal-based illustrator, muralist and director Doras, featured on Du Musée Avenue in the summer of 2022.
Inspired by the themes of nature and time present in Nicolas Party’s exhibition L’heure mauve, this installation revisited the Irish legend of Niamh and Oisín in Tír na nÓg, a paradisiacal island that is virtually immune to the ravages of time and where three years equal three hundred on Earth. Niamh invited passersby to reflect on how we come to terms with the passage of time, and aimed to bring an urban public closer to nature.
Niamh also paid tribute to the more than 6,300 donors who generously contributed to the MMFA’s 2021-2022 Annual Campaign, as well as to the partners, volunteers and employees of the Museum and its Foundation. We extend our most sincere thanks to them for their vital support.

Since the MMFA is a non-profit organization, it must generate its own revenue to cover most of its operating budget and finance the acquisition of artworks.
To ensure sound governance and optimal financial health of the Museum, the MMFA Foundation adheres to the values of commitment, excellence, solidarity, respect and integrity.
