As the visual arts component of POP Montreal, Art POP continues to showcase work by some of the most exciting artists working today.

In entering its 9th year, Art POP seeks to present and help facilitate new ideas and collaborations between artists and organizations from Montreal, Canada and abroad.

Each year, the programming is approached in new and creative ways through exhibitions, site-specific installations, performances, screenings, and artist talks, most of which are free and open to the public.

Johanna Heldebro, Art POP Curator

Johanna was raised in Northern Sweden. She holds a BFA from Concordia University, and an MFA from School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she was the recipient of the Paula Rhodes Memorial Award for her thesis work, To Come Within Reach of You…. Johanna has exhibited her work in Indonesia, North America, and Europe, including as part of the 4th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, and at the Finnish Museum of Photography. Johanna is the co-editor of Laura, a periodical that she launched together with her longtime collaborator, Jared Leon. They also play together in the Nymphets.
