At the intersection of art and technology, the exhibition The Polaroid Project presents the original works of some 100 of the most celebrated international artists of the 20th century along with the cameras they used.

The Polaroid, both an image and a wonderful tool, was invented by Edwin Land in 1947. It remains, despite the decline of the company, associated in the collective imagination with innovation, efficiency and leisure.

A Canadian exclusive exhibition at the McCord Museum from June 13 to September 15. Presented by La Presse+. This exhibition is organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, New York, in collaboration with the MIT Museum, Cambridge, and the WestLicht Museum for Photography, Vienna.
