The 7th Biennale de Montréal – BNL MTL stands under the banner of chance, a notion that molds our lives, our imagination and influences our understanding of the world around us. Under the title Elements of Chance, the BNL MTL 2011 will focus on this theme that has found a voice among contemporary artists.

In total, some 40 artists stemming from 10 different countries have been selected. Whether reputed or emerging, these artists hail from Québec, Canada, Europe and the USA, and have moved forward in an artistic pathway where chance plays an important role. Guest artists work in the fields of visual arts, photography, e-art, video and cinema.

Québec and Canadian artists will represent nearly 50% of all participants. Of note is Daniel Spoerri, who has been a major player on the international artistic scene since the 1960’s.

Through its exhibits, conferences, seminars and mediation activities, the BNL MTL 2011 will provide a venue for all explorations, supported by the vitality and originality of artists and their works.
