At 451 Saint-Jean Street, the PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art presents solo exhibitions of Abbas Akhavan and Jamilah Sabur as part of MOMENTA Biennale de l'image.

About

For its 17th edition, titled Sensing Nature (Quand la nature ressent in French), MOMENTA Biennale de l’image humbly invites us to consider environmental justice and its intersections with social justice as a matter of sensing and feeling as much as of analysis and grassroots activism.

At 451 Saint-Jean Street, the PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art presents solo exhibitions of Abbas Akhavan and Jamilah Sabur.

Abbas Akhavan: spill
In collaboration with the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal

This new work unfolds what could be a screensaver, a wallpaper, or an ideal of nature in harmony at a time when we couldn’t be further from it.

Jamilah Sabur: The Mountain Sings Underwater
For this work, artist Jamilah Sabur draws on the geological formation of the escarpment to connect the ocean floor and outer space, summoning localized intensities that expand beyond human notions of space and time.

This edition of the biennale is curated by Stefanie Hessler in collaboration with Camille Georgeson-Usher, Maude Johnson, and Himali Singh Soin.
