Who can receive professional certification?

Professionals in the arts milieu – curators, artists, programmers, and others – may receive professional certification. Cards must be collected directly from Manif d’art offices.


Certification confers privileges including free access to the main exhibit at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ), satellite activities, and exhibits by co-presenters.

During the Biennial, certified arts professionals may take part in round tables, symposia, and conferences. They may also visit workshops with Claude Bélanger, general director of Manif d’art.


Certification does not grant access to invitation-only events, such as the benefit gala and other special events, unless otherwise indicated.

Certification is for INDIVIDUALS ONLY. It cannot be loaned or exchanged, on pain of cancellation of access rights (cards will be confiscated).

Certification cards must be presented at the ticket office of the MNBAQ to be exchanged for a day-pass.
Certification cards are not replaced in the event of loss or theft.
