Occurrence is dedicated to the dissemination of contemporary art, with a focus on photography and image practices. Its program is selected through a committee of peers made up of artists and active participants in the arts community with varied viewpoints. Renewed each year, this committee ensures a diverse program that reflects current issues.

Founded in 1989, Occurrence is a not-for-profit organisation with a unique mandate in the Quebec cultural scene. Its name, meaning “what arrives in contingent ways”, carries a vision based on emergent practices and those that marked its history, actualising them to reveal their transformation in time.

Based on a reflection focused on the mandate and governance led by advisory committees and the Board of Directors, here are the orientations chosen for the next four years:
Focus on programming diversity, both in terms of practices and career stages, with a focus on photography and image practices;
Express contemporaneity and spontaneity in programming, by integrating curatorial projects and unscheduled activities;
Foster continuity with exhibitions by artists who have impacted on the history of Occurrence;
Develop international exchanges with foreign partners to inspire new practices;
Collaborate with local centers and events to share expertise, outreach, and support joint projects;
Increase visibility by prioritising diffusion, publication and online presence.

These dynamic axes are based on partnerships and a strengthened governance. With its flexible functioning, in which works and words circulate freely, Occurrence embodies the explorative spirit that initiated the first artists run centers in Quebec, a mission more current than ever.Spécifications techniques
