Digitizing the timeless

In March 2017, the museum completed a major research project that involved digitizing 348 objects that eloquently illustrate the practice of ceramics, textiles, and glass in Québec, from 1930 to today.

This project is part of a large-scale initiative: to ensure the dissemination of our contemporary collections through national databases, namely the Répertoire du patrimoine culturel du Québec, now accessible via Artefacts Canada.

In recent years, the MUMAQ has made a considerable effort to fill in the gaps in disciplines and periods in its collections. The digitized collections provide a more complete picture of the history and practices of crafts in Québec.

The chosen corpus reveals a wide range of artisans and crafts artists, along with various production situations, ranging from workshop, leisure, and family business production to marketing.
