The MOBA (Museum Of Bad Art) features a collection like no other in the world: the crème de la crème of art that is just “too bad to be ignored,” with curators travelling far and wide in search of works that hint at the dubious state of mind of the artists who created them. The mostly anonymous paintings are arranged in a unique perspective that accentuates their irregularities. Written with a light but mordant touch, the description of each work analyzes its iconography and style to pinpoint the source of its endearing strangeness.
Open every day from 10am to 5pm – Free entrance
27 Notre-Dame Street, G1K 4E9
MOBA has been striving to celebrate and preserve bad art since 1994. It now boasts over 800 works fished out of the trash or acquired at junk stores, and MOBA exhibitions have garnered media attention from The Boston Globe, The Independent, and The New York Times.
« Un endroit où des visiteurs du monde entier peuvent venir rire, s’esclaffer et apprécier de l’art ayant échoué de manière distinctive et souvent comique. C’est remarquable ! » – Boston Globe
