Papier 2022 will take place from August 26 to 28, 2022

Montreal, February 22, 2022 — The Contemporary Art Galleries Association (AGAC) is pleased to announce that the next edition of the Papier fair will take place from August 26 to 28, 2022 at the Port of Montreal's Grand Quay!  AGAC is looking forward to celebrating the start of Montreal's fall cultural season, while taking advantage of the last week of summer to offer visitors an exciting and sunny experience for this 15th edition of the fair.

Indeed, like many other events, Papier has seen its calendar disrupted by the pandemic over the past two years. After a virtual edition in June 2020 and a return to the Grand Quay in a hybrid format in November 2021, AGAC is looking forward to this summer edition, which will allow the Association to return to its usual spring time slot in 2023.

The Association plans to take advantage of the experience gained since its digital shift initiated in 2020 to improve the virtual aspect of the event and its online platform. It will be a great pleasure for AGAC and the galleries to reconnect physically and virtually with art lovers in August so that they can discover, acquire and admire an incredible selection of works.
