Suzanne Sauvage, the President and CEO of the McCord Museum, is delighted to offer Montrealers the chance to explore their many exhibitions.

“To mark the Museum’s 100th anniversary, we wanted to offer Montrealers of all backgrounds and all visitors a gift…The Museum’s centenary is an oppritunity for us to look to the future, reflect, exchange points of view and forge bonds with diverse communities while using our collection to recount history in an inclusive manner.”

On Nov. 19, the museum debuted an exhibition based on the Montreal-born fashion brand Parachute. The company was founded in 1977 by Nicola Pelly and architect Harry Parnass, and found fans in artists like Madonna and Duran Duran.

Other exhibitions include the work of famed Quebec cartoonist Chapleau, as well as a new permanent exhibition titled Indigenous Voices of Today.
