Paris Champ & Hors Champ - Contemporary photographs and videos

From September 26, 2014 to January 4, 2015 - Galerie des bibliothèques de la Ville de Paris

Paris Champ et Hors champ (in & out of the scope) presents a composite picture of the French capital through the eyes of contemporary artists over the past thirty years. The exhibition, loosely based on Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities, testifies to the evolution of the medium as well as the mutations of the city and explores various themes, such as Territory (Parisian and metropolitan), Space (urban and personal), or Social life (integrated or marginalized).
Such themes are freely interpreted by photographers and video artists represented in the art collections of the City of Paris (from museums, libraries, Maison européenne de la Photographie, Fonds Municipal d’Art Contemporain, CENTQUATRE, Institut des Cultures d’Islam).

Among the eighty works on display are photographs or videos by artists such as Chris Marker, Stéphane Couturier, Valérie Jouve, Alain Bublex, Mohamed Bourouissa, Jane Evelyn Atwood, Eustache Kossakowsky, Philippe Ramette or Patrick Faigenbaum.


Curator: Anne Cartier-Bresson, director of the Atelier de Restauration et de Conservation des Photographies de la Ville de Paris.
