Our 2018-2019 art programming series Movement & Migrations addresses local and global mobilities – whether physical, spiritual, ideological, or emotional – and exemplifies our model for a museum that explores the intersections of contemporary art, heritage, and community building. Works that bear a strong demonstrable connection to the Movement & Migrations theme, our Museum’s mandate and/or celebrate women (especially those from Montreal’s Jewish community) are of particular interest. We will accept other proposals as well. We also encourage and support collaborations between artists and community partners in order to foster closer connections between the greater Montreal public and its diverse Jewish cultures.
