Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont

An extensive collection of 65 paintings by contemporary artists Marcel Barbeau, Stephen Conroy, Jacques Hurtubise, Françoise Sullivan, Rita Letendre, Marc Seguin, Guido Molinari, Richard Serra, Geneviève Cadieux, Claude Tousignant and Richard Max Tremblay

An extensive collection of 65 paintings by contemporary artists Marcel Barbeau, Stephen Conroy, Jacques Hurtubise, Françoise Sullivan, Rita Letendre, Marc Seguin, Guido Molinari, Richard Serra, Geneviève Cadieux, Claude Tousignant and Richard Max Tremblay were put on display in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at l'Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont.

Canadian painter Marcel Barbeau's highly original work-which ranges from free-flowing abstractions to highly geometrical pieces-has been widely exhibited in Europe, Canada and the U.S., while the works of Scottish artist Stephen Conroy, which depict mostly male figures, have also earned him international recognition.

This installation of contemporary works is the largest gallery in the hospital, which now houses a total of 500 works of art. 37 of these pieces were donated by Dr. Andre Levasseur, who has been collecting art for over 35 years and who is also the director of the Nuclear Medicine Department. He sees the addition of the artwork as a way of humanizing the industrial space and creating a healing environment.
