Through December 1, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is presenting the works of Mexican-British artist Alinka Echeverría as part of MOMENTA | Biennale de l’image. Developed out of her 2015 research residency at the Musée Nicéphore Niépce, Simulacres: Alinka Echeverría explores the objectification of women, reframing the legacy of Nicéphore Niépce from a feminist perspective. Through collage, Echeverría creates a conversation between vases in the MMFA collection and these representations of women.
