Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal, 14th edition
International Biennial of the Contemporary Image

THE POST-PHOTOGRAPHIC CONDITION

Guest Curator Joan Fontcuberta
10 SEPT - 11 OCT 2015

From September 10 to October 11, 2015, MPM throws the spotlight on The Post-Photographic Condition, the theme conceived by renowned Catalan guest curator Joan Fontcuberta.

Through a rigorously curated and provocative exhibition program that showcases established and emerging international and Canadian artists, the biennial stands at the forefront of current investigations on contemporary still and moving images. MPM brings forward acclaimed art professionals, academics, and curators, advancing leading-edge research through a major publication, an international colloquium, a portfolio review, as well as a series of artist talks. The program features the Dazibao Prize, video screenings, workshops and guided tours.

Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal 2015 features 29 artists from five continents, and presents more than 100 works, including a number of productions specially created for its 14th edition.

PUBLICATIONS

Each edition of Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal is accompanied by a major, lavishly illustrated scholarly publication.

More than an exhibition catalogue, this stands alone as a reference work that readers can use to deepen their understanding of the theme of the biennal. In addition to an original essay by Joan Fontcuberta, this year’s publication, entitled The Post- Photographic Condition, brings together four previously unpublished texts by experts in contemporary and media arts: Derrick de Kerckhove (Ontario, Canada), Suzanne Paquet (Quebec, Canada), Fred Ritchin (United States), and David Tomas (Quebec, Canada).

A veritable panorama of the most recent trends in contemporary image-making, the book includes abundant photographs of the works presented.
