SPOTLIGHT! Photography from the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection
SPOTLIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY features the work of ten outstanding contemporary photographers who use the cinematic technique of a close-up to compose their subjects. The selection chosen by Lisa K. Erf, Director and curator of the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection, explores the themes of identity, landscape and abstraction. The JPMorgan Chase Art Collection, created in 1959 by David Rockefeller, has more than 30,000 works of art on display in 450 offices worldwide. With more than 6,000 photographs or photography-based works, both historical and contemporary, the collection has always emphasized photography.
WILD STYLE by Mazaccio & Drowilal, laureates of the BMW Art & Culture Residency
Mazaccio & Drowilal present Wild Style, an anthropologic and iconographic, and above all photographic study of animals and their contemporary cultural representations. “The figures and the objects collected in Wild Style evoke kitsch prints, 1990s soppy or flashy, often found on cheap t-shirts, childish iron-on transfers, automotive body paint, personalized mugs or household items, street or garden decor… Wild Style appears such as a catalog of commodified forms of animal life by image, to the point that the separation between the real and its representation becomes imperceptible.” (From the essay “Spoiler Alert!” by Fani Morières and Nicolas Heimendinger in Wild Style, published by Editions Trocadéro)
SILENZIO! by François Fontaine, exhibition presented by Leica
A nostalgic and poetic voyage through the cinematic moments that have helped shape our culture; a reflection on memory, dream and fantasy; an homage to the cinema of the 40s to today.
Paris Photo and Leica present The Paris Photo Agenda, a visual platform that selects the best of photography all year long from more than 200 galleries and institutions around the world.
