Tour of the New Bourgie Pavilion of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, High-Lighting 20th Century and Art Deco Works
6 p.m. Wednesday, March 21, 2012
Our tour highlighting Art Deco and 20th Century Art works will be given by Rosalind Pepall, Senior Curator of Decorative Arts at the MMFA and Anne Grace, Curator of Modern Art at the MMFA. After a major renovation and expansion, the former Erskine and American Church has morphed into the Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion.
Each of the pavilion’s six levels spotlights a historical period for which a specifically designed presentation enables a better understanding and appreciation of Quebec and Canadian art.
L4 — INUIT ART
L3 — FOUNDING IDENTITIES (1700s–1870s)
L2 — THE ERA OF ANNUAL EXHIBITIONS (1880s–1920s)

S1 — THE AGE OF THE MANIFESTO (1940s–1960s)
S2 — EXPANDING FIELDS (1960s–1970s)
The Nave of the former Erskine and American Church, noted for its Tiffany stained glass windows, has been restored and transformed into the 444 seat concert hall Bougie Hall- as well as an exhibition space for the presentation of the Museum’s collection of stained glass windows which are unique in Canada.
