Articles have dealt with the theme of BNL MTL, its venue as well as with the participating artists who hail from Québec, Canada and other countries. Le Devoir specifically focused on the participation of artist Daniel Spoerri who will be coming to Montréal to organize a fund raising dinner and present his works.
