The In Conversations series brings together curators, artists, scholars, and audiences to critically dive into our broader contemporary cultural condition.
Rooted in the exhibitions and practices presented at the PHI Centre in Montreal, these conversations explore the art and artists whose voices are probing each of our individual roles in our collective social context.
Discover the conversations accompanying the PHI Centre's exhibitions.

About the episode
In this episode, Night Confessions, we discuss dating apps. Having recently celebrated their first decade of existence, they've become a select space for looking for potential partners and exploring preferences.
Online dating has revolutionized the search for love and sexual and romantic connections. But is it all glitter and rainbows?

We would like to acknowledge that PHI (the Foundation and the Centre) is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehà:ka Nation is recognized as the custodian of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtià:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montréal community.
