Photoforum is a portfolio review event in contemporary photography at the gallery Les Territoires. The biennale event favours exchanges and networking between emerging artists and players in the visual arts milieu. The review, inspired by great portfolio reviews such as those in Barcelona and Santa Fe, is the first of its kind in Montreal and is already at its second edition.


Conceived as a federating event, Photoforum connects 41 emerging artists with 31 professionals from the art world. On the 28th and 29th of April, curators, galerists, writers and art critics will participate to this event dedicated to the analysis of the work and portfolio of emerging photographer-artists as well as advise them in the development of their career. Each artist, chosen by a jury, has the opportunity to meet with 7 professionals of their choice during this unique weekend.


Ranging from portrait to installation photography, the Photoforum exhibit offers a panorama of emerging creativity in photography in Montreal and is also the occasion to discover new works.
