The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is opening its doors to the public next week.

Four exhibitions will be presented as of February 11 that are “brimming with artistic discoveries and reflections on the major issues of our time will be presented.”

In an email shared with Daily Hive, the MMFA says the museum will premiere the major exhibition Riopelle: The Call of Northern Landscapes and Indigenous Cultures, along with the discovery exhibitions GRAFIK! Five Centuries of German and Austrian Graphics, Yehouda Chaki: Mi Makir; A Search for the Missing and Manuel Mathieu: Survivance.

The MMFA says they are “delighted” to allow guests to revisit the museum and say they have put “every measure in place to ensure visits are highly enjoyable, exclusive yet intimate, and, above all, safe.”

The museum says “all recommendations” issued by the Quebec government and the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) have been implemented. Wearing a face covering is mandatory during the entire visit to the MMFA, and sanitization stations will be set up throughout the facility.

In preparation for their MMFA outing, visitors must purchase their tickets online and select the date and time of their visit. Visitors can reserve tickets as of February 9 to “have a safe, enjoyable experience.”
