NEXT EDITION | SEPTEMBER 2017
GUEST CURATOR | AMI BARAK
THEME | WHAT DOES THE IMAGE STAND FOR?
Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal is delighted to announce the appointment of Ami Barak as guest curator for the 15th edition of its biennial, which will take place in September 2017.
Centred around the theme What Does the Image Stand For?, MPM 2017 will probe the concept of photographic evidence in all its guises. The event will feature works that question the status of the photograph as a recording of the real, and will examine the fantastical and sublimated character of reality. Viewers will be encouraged to take a critical stance toward the testimonial value of lens- based images, be they still or moving.
The call for submissions from Canadian artists is is now closed. Thanks to all who submitted!
Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal gratefully acknowledges the ongoing support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Conseil des arts de Montréal
