Photographic Missions on the contemporary landscape
With a view to documenting the contemporary Québec landscape, Rencontres is partnering, thanks to the support of Loto-Québec, with regional creation and dissemination organizations, including the Centre d’exposition de Val-David and the exhibition center L’Imagier, in Gatineau, as part of its Photographic Missions.
The goal of these missions, which invite artists to take a good look at the state of the Québec landscape, is to present critical perspectives, to provoke reflection or to generate utopias.
To that end, a call has gone out to professional artists residing in Québec to submit a project proposal. The selection will then be made by a committee of peers made up of artists and stakeholders in the field of contemporary Québec photography.
The Photographic Missions will cover, between now and 2024 and given the necessary funding, the entirety of the Québec landscape. Rencontres also hopes that they will serve as a provincial archival collection.
