In preparation for our new programming, please note that the Foundation will be closed to the public from December 13, 2021 until February 3, 2022.
Our offices will remain open during regular hours.
The existence of the Foundation originates with a generous legacy from the artist, intended to promote and perpetuate his creative work, notably by converting his last studio located in former bank premises in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood, into an exhibition, conference and documentation centre in which works of art are shown and created, and intended in particular to promote the work of young, emerging artists.
Guido Molinari was born in 1933 in Montreal, where he studied from time to time between 1948 and 1951 at the École des beaux-arts and at the School of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. He had his first solo show in 1953, at the L’Échourie restaurant, and three years later, exhibited in the United States for the first time. This self-taught artist quickly became the acknowledged master of abstract painting in Canada.
The Guido Molinari Foundation is currently preparing the catalogue raisonné of the artist’s prints, a corpus of over one hundred works created between 1965 and 2002.
