DAM joins with The 2014 Montréal Biennale
Montreal, October 22, 2014 – This year, Diversité artistique Montréal (DAM) is proud to be a partner of The Montréal Biennale, which begins on Wednesday October 22, 2014 and will run until January 4, 2015. This international event will showcase contemporary artworks made by around fifty artists from 22 different countries. The BNLMTL2014 will be held on 14 different sites in Montreal and will organize- in addition to the main exhibition- several conferences, guided visits, and other workshops designed to familiarize citizens with contemporary art.
DAM acknowledges the support that The Montréal Biennale provides to local art practices, and the opportunities it gives to artists from diverse backgrounds and origins. It is also important to note the generous fees offered to the exhibiting artists. The initiative is a laudable one, given the low pay practices in this sector.
This year, the partnership consists in an exchange of communications. But it also shows the mutual recognition of DAM and The Biennale, at the same time as it could pave the way, in the future, for an artistic collaboration involving our artists-members… As the theme of the 2014 edition of the BNLMTL is “Looking forward”, let’s not be afraid to look forward!
Good Biennale to everyone!
