Attendance Figures at Québec Museums in 2009


Earlier this month the Institut de la statistique du Québec and the Observatoire de la culture et des communications du Québec came out with Attendance Figures at Québec Museums in 2009. Back in April, The Art Newspaper came out with Exhibition and museum attendance figures 2009 [pdf alert].

I have a couple of questions: 1. What does the Québec government do that requires an extra four months? 2. Why didn't the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal tell the government that in fact the Robert Polidori exhibit was Polidori along with Christine Davis and Spring Hurlbut as they did to the Art Newspaper? And 3. Why doesn't the Musée de la civilisation report to the Art Newspaper as well? (If Egypt: the Great Civilisation can make the Top 30, then I would imagine that Fascinantes Momies d’Égypte should be on the list as well.)
