Since June 2018, artists Caroline Boileau and Stéphane Gilot are taking over L’imprimerie’s storefront—an adaptable exploration space overlooking Sainte-Catherine Street East—by integrating to it an architectural structure that is more creation laboratory than exhibition space. L’imprimerie’s members are invited to take possession of this unique space by submitting proposals for installation works. All media are welcome: print, photography, drawing, sculpture and performance, with a strong focus on hybrid practices that use paper as primary material.
Le Chantier, a research project on the printed and photographic image
Le Chantier is a vast collective research project focused on the interdisciplinary development of the printed and photographic image. Its aim is to generate exchanges between different fields in order to encourage fundamentally transform artistic practices, beyond technological hybridization.
Montreal Emerging Photography Award
Presented in collaboration with Occurrence, the Montreal Emerging Photography Award aims to assist, recognize, and encourage local emerging artists (40 years and younger), by offering concrete support to help them get their career started.
Research and creation residencies
This program, based on an annual call for proposals, is aimed at professional artists – or people that are in the process of becoming professional artists – who have submitted a project. Residents receive a free one-year membership, a production fee, free materials, access to the multi-purpose room and technical assistance, if needed.
There are currently no calls for proposals
