MONTREAL.- The chair of the board of directors of Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal, Diane Charbonneau, announced the appointment of Katia Meir as director general. Meir took office on June 9, 2014, succeeding Chuck Samuels, who had led the organization since 2002.

Katia Meir has been working for more than twenty years in the contemporary art field, fulfilling mandates with a wide variety of art organizations as director, curator, and consultant. She has also been the editor of twenty publications and sat on a number of juries and committees. Before being director of SBC Gallery of Contemporary Art, she was assistant curator at the Liane and Danny Taran Gallery at the Saidye Bronfman Centre for the Arts. She has also worked for a number of events, including the Biennale de Montréal 2007, the Arts le Havre 2006 contemporary art biennale, and Artifice ’98 and Artifice ’96: Contemporary Visual Art Montreal.

With her unrivalled experience, Meir is enthusiastic about meeting the challenges associated with being director general of Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal. She will contribute to advancing the organization’s mandate by producing an innovative photographic event with the goal of enabling the public to appreciate the different trends in Canadian and international photography and learn about current issues related to image-based practices through experimentation, discussions, exchanges, and debates.

The 14th edition of Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal will take place in September 2015, and will explore the theme The Post-Photographic Condition, proposed by guest curator Joan Fontcuberta.

Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal is a member of Regroupement Pied Carré (Pi2) and is now located at 5445 de Gaspé Avenue, suite 335, Montreal, Quebec, H2T 3B2 Canada.
