Momenta Biennale de l’image
In September 2021, I had the good fortune of bringing some students to visit two venues participating in the Momenta Biennale de l’image this year: Galerie de l’UQAM and Vox Contemporary Image Center. The title of the 17th edition of the Biennale was Sensing Nature. The artists involved all responded to Nature in their work, which took the form of photography, installation, sculpture, video and sound, among other media. The students each chose one work and proposed a visual analysis, keeping in mind not only a description of the work, but also its subject matter and cultural context. Here is a selection of texts from students in two classes: Art History 1 for Fine Arts students, and Modernism in the Visual Arts, a complementary class. Well done to all of the students for their perceptive and thoughtful discussions on artworks of our times!
