Montreal's First Digital Art Biennial

A biennial is an important event in the contemporary art world. 

It's a bi-annual exhibition that attempts to capture and express the state of contemporary art at a given moment. 

You've probably heard of the Venice Biennale or the Sao Paulo biennial -- some of the most famous and important international art gatherings in the world.

Now, there's a new biennial starting in Montreal: the International Digital Arts Biennial (BIAN). 

Alain Thibault is the artistic director of the BIAN.  

Matthew Biederman is one of the artists participating. His video installation "Event Horizon" is on until May 27 at the Cinémathèque Québécoise.
