Collection Management Policy

The MAC LAU is currently in the process of revising its collection management policy in collaboration with the artistic development committee. The mandate of this committee is to rethink the Museum’s artistic field, starting with its collection and its vision for the dissemination of contemporary art. The question which animates the exchanges throughout the permanent exhibition is oriented on the aesthetic and political role of an institution of the nature of a museum of contemporary art.

In July 2019, the MAC LAU posted information about its collection on "DONNÉES QUÉBEC Le carrefour collaboratif en données ouvertes québécoises" platform, the first museum, outside of state museums, to participate. We are very pleased to share this information and to collaborate in the advancement of research in the field of Quebec museology and statistics. An interesting resource to discover! (In French only)

Contribute to the development of our collection

The main mission of the Musée d’art contemporain des Laurentides is to showcase, share and promote the works of visual artists. Towards this vision, the museum collects, preserves, exhibits and documents artworks with a particular emphasis on contemporary art. The MAC LAU acquires, on a regular basis, a growing collection of print and audiovisual works and media reflective of the visual arts practices of the Laurentians, allowing for the continued documentation, preservation, research, exhibition and interpretation of these works. The MAC LAU carefully evaluates all artworks donation submissions.
