Quebec in Design
75 Years of Works from the Collection of the MNBAQ

The use or the message are not the only vectors of it performance; the subject takes precedence over the object.

More than 130 items – from small advertising posters to garden chairs and bicycles – illustrate the history of design in Quebec from the 1930s to the present.

Posters, concept sketches, models and a wide-ranging array of objects trace the evolution of Quebec creativity in graphic design, applied arts and industrial design from the advent of interior decoration in the between-the-wars period through to the years of artistic ferment leading to Expo 67.
