About MPM


Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal (MPM) is a leading international biennale dedicated to the contemporary image. Since its beginnings in 1989, MPM produces a unique and exciting opportunity to discover the latest trends in photography, video and lens-based art. For each edition, a guest curator proposes a theme to explore and selects roughly 20 to 40 artists whose works are presented in 15 venues across Montréal. The exhibitions are complemented by a major publication, an international colloquium, the Dazibao Prize, a portfolio review, as well as a series of artists’ talks, video projections, workshops, and guided tours for all ages.

Over the years, the biennale programming has demonstrated artistic and intellectual rigor, while remaining accessible to a wide audience. As one of the major cultural events of the city, MPM contributes to Montreal’s cultural vibrancy as a must-see destination.

Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal is a non-profit organization recognized as a charity by Canada Revenue Agency. MPM is a member of Festivals et Événements Québec, Tourisme Montréal, and Festival of Light.
