Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal (MPM) is a leading international biennial 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.
