When it opened in 1964, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) was a true pioneer, the first institution in Canada devoted exclusively to contemporary art. It has been in its current home on the Place des Arts, along with the city’s symphony, ballet, and opera, since 1992. Like the Musée des Beaux-Arts, one of MAC’s strengths is its work by Quebecois and Canadian artists, though leading international figures are represented as well. Through October 2015, the museum is presenting "New Discoveries and Other Obsessions," in which the museum's director and curator John Zeppetelli has selected recent acquisitions and major works that reflect his interests in building the MAC collection.
