An international contemporary art biennale devoted to the image
Since more than thirty years: an exceptional rendezvous in Montréal’s most important museums, galleries and artist-run centres.
Based in Montréal, the biennale has taken place every two years since 1989. Its activities include exhibitions, public events, educational programs, artistic and social collaborations, and more.
From September 5 to October 13, 2019, the 16th edition of the biennale presents 39 artists around the theme The Life of Things, curated by María Wills Londoño in collaboration with Audrey Genois and Maude Johnson.
*Admission fees apply for exhibitions at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal.
