Le Mois de la Photo ? Montr?al is seeking the guest curator and theme for the 14th edition of its international biennale of contemporary photography that will take place in September 2015. The organization is soliciting brief, preliminary proposals (one page) from which a short list of candidates will be asked to submit more detailed dossiers.
Every two years since 1989, Le Mois de la Photo ? Montr?al produces an innovative photography event that serves as a catalyst for artists, other specialists of the image and the general public.
This event promotes different tendencies in contemporary photography and creates international exchanges between photographers, the public at large, curators, the media and collectors. Le Mois de la Photo ? Montr?al works with museums, galleries, artist-run centres, universities, and numerous other partners to present a stimulating event that, by virtue of a series of mostly solo exhibitions spread across the city, transforms Montr?al into one immense coherent group exhibition organized around a single unifying concept or theme.
Le Mois de la Photo ? Montr?al invited a guest curator to elaborate a new theme for each presentation of the biennale. All the exhibitions, educational activities, the conferences and the publication are all organized around this singular theme. For information regarding the curators and themes of previous events, please consult our Web.
If you wish to submit a project, please download our complete submission guidelines here (PDF format).

Obviously it is the opportunity to show the works and be part of discussions that may provide and lead up to good dialogues and debates. But the fact that the last time I was here was such an important reference point is something that I would like to share. Continue reading “Chobi Mela VII: Dhaka revisited”

Chobi Mela VII Preparation ? Ranak Martin
Festival Director Shahidul Alam talks about the challenges and expectations one faces when running a festival such as Chobi Mela and points out the festival?s uniqueness and beauty.
There?s only few days left before the beginning of Chobi Mela VII and there are still a thousand things to be done and we are awaiting many guests from all over the world. So tell me, how is this Chobi Mela different from previous editions of the festival? What is special this time round?
S. Alam : ?Firstly, it?s actually an extension of previous ones, What we?ve always done in Chobi Mela is to ensure that it?s a very inclusive festival, there are people from all the continents, there is a very diverse range of work in terms of photographic practices, but also in terms of the ideas behind it. Of course we have some artists who are here for very first time, I mean Graciela Iturbide will be here for the first time, Max Pam will be here for the first time, we are not sure yet if Eugene Richards is able to make it, they have very tight schedules but their work is already here. So yes! Very exciting work. Continue reading “Munem Wasif interviews Shahidul Alam on Chobi Mela VII”
