Our permanent collection is alive! It is activated through public events supporting writing, new artworks and publications around visual and print culture. We aim to be inclusive of all cultures existing across Canada in contemporary art. Our offers include conferences, workshops, readings, artist talks, performances, film screenings and many off site activities such as Papier art fair and the International Symposium of Contemporary Art of Baie-Saint-Paul.
