Bonnie Baxter / THE PATCH

Bonnie Baxter

September 1 to December 11, 2022

The Patch Trilogy presents a series of contemporary fables created in a functional tomato garden. Eleven artists, young and old, from different countries and cultural perspectives performed their stories for a new and changing world. Captured from first fruition to hard frost and the white winter months of the Laurentians these tales are layered with a chorus for climate justice by Bonnie Baxter to create a series of immersive 360°, VR and AR experiences.

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.
