The Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, created in the early 1960s, is part of the four largest Canadian artistic and cultural institutions. Looking to redevelop and expand its spaces dedicated to public programming, the museum will convert approximately 5,000 m2 and expand 1,500 m2 of its spaces. The redevelopment program focuses on improving the accessibility and visibility of the Museum's main entrance, increasing spaces dedicated to education, and improving the overall atmosphere of the museum.
