Joshua Petherick is presenting a group of works in the 2017 iteration of MOMENTA Biennale de l’image, Montreal, CA. For the 2017 biennale, MOMENTA has joined forces with the renowned curator and art critic Ami Barak. The theme he has selected revolves around the statement: What Does the Image Stand For? Barak has thus brought together artists who explore the question of the veracity of images above and beyond their status as a documentary trace and a record of the real, while inquiring into the subjectivity of photographic and videographic language. In keeping with its international vocation and its tradition of openness, MOMENTA 2017 is showcasing the work of 38 artists from 17 countries, who represent numerous ways of working with the image irrespective of generational concerns.
Petherick will be exhibiting in the Central Exhibition, which is being held across the Galerie de l’UQAM and VOX Centre de l’Image Contemporaine.
Opening on 7 September the biennale runs until 15 October.
