Meet John Zeppetelli, the man charged with making the MAC more popular

John-Zeppetelli_image0021-682x1024.jpgJohn Zeppetelli is the new Director and Chief Curator of the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art.

He started in August under a fair amount of media scrutiny.

The previous diretor and curator both resigned, after the chairman of the board Alexandre Taillifer made it clear that he wants to make the MAC more popular.

So John Zeppetelli knew what he was signing up for when he accepted the job.

We gave him a few months to settle in, and then invited him into the Cinq à Six studio for a feature interview with Jeanette Kelly.
