The exhibitions will be presented in 4 circuits throughout the city of Montreal: Downtown, Plateau-Mont-Royal/Mile-End, in four Maisons de la culture de la Ville de Montréal (city cultural centres), and for first time, in Saint-Henri. This year Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal will infuse the Saint-Henri district with exhibitions that will take place in former industrial and religious buildings and public space interventions in the area.   To compliment the exhibitions an array of activities and festivities are organized: Opening Festivities on September 6, the Nocturnal Event on September 7, a series of exhibition openings throughout the biennale, an international colloquium titled "The Photographic Becoming of the Image" on October 5 at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, an educational program in the Saint-Henri district, as well as artists' talks and guided tours.   Among the special events not to be missed, Montreal writer Wajdi Mouawad will record, in performance, a new narration for Christelle Lheureux's (France) film L'Expérience préhistorique (September 5, Cinémathèque québécoise). Also from Montreal, guitarist Bernard Falaise will play for artists' Karin Kihlberg and Reuben Henry's (Sweden/UK) performance, CHNS: A Demonstration of Classic Hollywood Narrative Structure (September 7, Centre des arts actuels SKOL).   Also entitled "Replaying Narrative," the publication of Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal 2007, edited by Marie Fraser, assembles five essays by internationally known experts and numerous colour reproductions of the artists' works. It is the first major publication that brings to light the subject of narrativity of the image by presenting the points of view of both Canadian and international authors. This 400-page bilingual reference book will be available in various exhibition sites during the event, and in Canadian bookstores from September 7. International purchases can be made through our distributor Edipresse (information@edipresse.ca).   To further mark the 10th presentation, Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal will honour the participating artists with two new prestigious awards. The Contact Image/Le Devoir People's Choice Award will reward the public's favourite artist with a grant of CA$1,500 – voting ballots are available in our program, on our Web site, and at the exhibitions. The Dazibao Award will give opportunity to an artist chosen by jury to produce a book as part of the collection Les Portables by Les éditions Dazibao. The award recipients will be announced on October 5, immediately following the colloquium in the Shaughnessy House at the Canadian Centre for Architecture. The official program is now available at the exhibition sites and can be downloaded from our Web site: www.moisdelaphoto.com.   Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal is an international biennale of contemporary photography that was first presented in 1989 to mark the 150th anniversary of the invention of photography. We would like to thank Contact Image for being the official sponsor of our 10th anniversary presentation.
