2 PHOTO EXHIBITIONS
- Preserving the oceans: an essential challenge for today’s societies
An exhibition of photographs by students from the French and Quebec marine universities in the France-Quebec institute for scientific cooperation in support of the maritime sector (IFQM). The exhibition highlights photographs of students working in marine sciences and technologies at French and Quebec universities that are members of IFQM. The central theme of the photo competition, which ran through the autumn of 2021, was ‘preserving the oceans: an essential challenge for today’s societies’, divided into several categories.
For each of the categories, two photographs were selected by an exceptional jury made up of leading professional photographers, Laurent Ballesta and Mario Cyr, as well as experts in scientific culture, Céline Liret from Océanopolis and Olivier Grant from Biodome. Encouraged through social networks, the public also selected one photograph per category that was voted the public’s favourite.
Accessible from the 8th of february to the 8th of may in the gardens of Océanopolis.
Free access from the 8th to the 11th of february during the One Ocean Summit.
- Amer – Fighting ocean grabbing for the common good
The exhibition by the argos collective on ocean grabbing and the battles to preserve the common good that our oceans represent (patroned by François Gabart) continues its own journey, having been presented on the quais de Scène in Paris as well as at the IUCN congress in Marseille.
After making a first documentary series on climate refugees broadcast by the world press and published by MIT, then a series on the ecological footprint and impact of carbon in the world, Amer is a long-term work, started four years ago, focusing on the oceans and its man-made devastation: plastic pollution, overfishing, mass tourism, mining and global warming.
An exhibition organised by the argos collective, the French Biodiversity Agency (OFB) and Océanopolis
Accessible from the 8th of february to the 8th of march on the promenade of the Moulin Blanc marina, near Océanopolis.
