The Loan Collection

Works in this collection can travel to other museums, but also to public places, such as hospitals or educational institutions. The museum takes every precaution required to conserve the works over the long term, but is aware of the repercussions of wider dissemination on longevity. The collection therefore includes works of high aesthetic quality, but which are judged secondary in terms of an artist’s overall art production, and works in series (prints and photographs produced in large editions). The MAC LAU is currently exhibiting 36 works from its Loan Collection at Cégep de Saint-Jérôme.

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.
