To celebrate both the opening of the Pierre Lassonde pavilion and the vitality of the contemporary arts scene in Québec, this inaugural exhibition will pay tribute to one of the most influential and representative art practices: installation.

Designed to create a promenade, beginning in the magnificent new galleries of the Pierre Lassonde pavilion, the fourth cornerstone of the MNBAQ complex, and ending in the Gérard-Morisset pavilion, the exhibition will bring together some thirty emblematic installations from Québec over the past forty years found in the Musée’s exceptional collection.

These works, in some cases never before exhibited and in other cases memorable for their interaction with the visitor or their imposing occupation of space, are each a milestone of an artistic form located at the boundary between disciplines, like the new MNBAQ.
