Quand la collection prédit l'avenir / Permanent exhibition

Exhibition of the collection

Permanent

While the title may seem anachronistic, it evokes the idea of taking charge of our institution’s future in regards to the history of our transformation, so that our future decisions may emulate this history.

Ces œuvres permettent d’interroger et d’analyser les interactions nature-culture et d’y observer, à chacune des visites, la « permanence de l’éphémère ».

Our collections

Working towards an active collecting

The MAC LAU’s museum status, obtained in 2014, represented the culmination of work begun over 10 years ago. The museum’s demographic context, size, new designation, focus, and management all have an influence on its art policy. Thus, a committee is currently working on the MAC LAU’s artistic statement, beginning with what constitutes an art museum’s aesthetic and political responsibility. Using this vision statement as its starting point, the MAC LAU will revise its field of action and the focus of its collection, as well as work towards a harmonized vision of collecting and disseminating. It is important to examine the concept of the contract that links the institution to the artist, gallery owner, and collector. The MAC LAU will also review its modes of acquisition through this lens.
