Press Releases – The Art of Ruinart: MCA announces Ruinart as Champagne partner

Posted on March 21, 2017
The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) today announced Ruinart as its official Partner. Ruinart’s partnership with Australia’s leading contemporary art museum will deliver new experiences for those who appreciate contemporary art and the refined ‘art de vivre’ of Ruinart.

The House of Ruinart, the oldest champagne House, established in 1729, has enjoyed close and long-standing relations with the art world, starting in 1896 when André Ruinart commissioned Czech artist Alfons Mucha to create an advertising poster – the very first collaboration between a Champagne house and an artist. Since then, Ruinart has worked with a number of artists and designers including Hubert le Gall, Maarten Baas, India Mahdavi, Georgia Russell and Erwin Olaf. Today, as a patron of contemporary art and design, Maison Ruinart can be found all over the world, wherever artists enjoy the freedom to express themselves and exhibit their work, from Art Basel to FIAC, Frieze to Art Paris.

Located on one of the world’s most spectacular sites on the edge of Sydney Harbour, the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia is dedicated to exhibiting, collecting and interpreting the work of today’s artists. It is an integral part of Australia’s cultural fabric and is both a locally-loved and internationally respected institution – welcoming over 1.2 million visitors annually.

Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, Director of MCA, said: “We are delighted to have Ruinart on board as the official Champagne of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. Our two institutions have been passionately fostering and working with artists throughout our respective histories, sharing a commitment to excellence, creativity and innovation. We are proud to be their Australian art partner.”
