Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal (MPM), has become MOMENTA Biennale de l’image since 2017. 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.

MOMENTA Biennale de l’image is a flagship Montréal event devoted to contemporary art. For several years, MOMENTA has been inviting artists and audiences from the world over to gather in the city’s museums, galleries, and artist-run centres. Its activities include exhibitions, public events, and educational workshops that introduce participants to artists, both local and international, whose works pique curiosity and stimulate reflection.
