What is Art Deco Montreal?
The Art Deco Society of Montreal is a bilingual, nonprofit organization formed to foster awareness and appreciation of the Art Deco period (c.1920-1940) and to preserve the precious decorative, industrial, and architectural arts of that era.
Montréal ranks in the top ten cities in the world for its Art Déco architecture. Let’s work together to appreciate, and preserve it.
Presently there are over 30 Art Deco societies actively operating in major cities across the U.S., England, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, South America and Canada (Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal). These are all members of the International Coalition of Art Deco Societies (ICADS). World Congresses on Art Deco take place every two years. The 9th World Congress was held in Melbourne April 15 to 21, 2007. In 2009 the 10th World Congress was held in Montreal.
The next congress will be held in Havana, Cuba sometime in March 2013.
