Audacity, avant-gardism, going off the beaten path, shuffling perspectives and taking risks to innovate, create, invent… such are the common values which naturally unite Ubisoft Montréal and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
Ubisoft Montréal is now a major partner of the museum’s for the next 3 years, thereby helping promote culture and innovation, and allowing the MAC to continue presenting striking exhibitions devoted to new artists,
in complement to its existing contemporary permanent collection. Unsettling, inspiring, and at times uncomfortable; you’ll either love it or hate it. But one thing is certain: you cannot remain unmoved by the exhibitions presented by the MAC in 2016.
The first exhibition marks the Canadian premiere of an internationally renowned Icelandic artist, Ragnar Kjartansson, who merges performance, music and video into works that probe the tragic and comic aspects of human existence. The works include a collaboration between Kjartansson and the group Sigur Ros, as well as a video performance with the band The National organized by MoMA PS1 in which the group interpreted its song Sorrow without interruption for 6 consecutive hours.
