When it comes to party-time, one of our most venerable cultural institutions, the
doesn’t mess around. Conversely, the highly decorated Montreal showcase for extraordinary works of contemporary art, is now also renowned for its event-making and benefit-throwing skills. Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (aka the MAC) CASE IN POINT: The recent brainbaby of the younger arm of the museum. Boasting an innovative techno-jungle theme, “Jangala” (Sanskrit for “uncultivated land”), the evening, masterminded by 11 th annual Printemps du MAC, ROBERT ALEXANDER QUINN, and inspired by both the primeval and futuristic, wowed throughout the night.
