Roumanian collage artist Ion Barladeanu in Paris at Galerie Anne de Villepoix: ‘Now I feel like a prince, says Barladeanu. A pauper can become a prince. But he can go back to being a pauper too.’

Roumanian collage artist Ion Barladeanu in Paris at Galerie Anne de Villepoix: ‘Now I feel like a prince, says Barladeanu. A pauper can become a prince. But he can go back to being a pauper too.’

Ion Barladeanu is on his way to becoming an important contemporary artist, but in May 2008 he was still an anonymous tramp on the streets of Bucharest.”
“He created many of his collages from scraps of discarded magazines during and after the Communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu.” “His collages are being hailed as politically brave and culturally irreverent.” “Barledeanu describes himself as a ‘director’ of his own films and considers each collage to be a movie in itself.”

Lisette Model at the Jeu de Paume in Paris.

Lisette Model at the Jeu de Paume in Paris.

This exhibition of some 120 of Lisette Model’s most representative photographs illustrates the very bold and direct approach to reality that made her one of the most singular proponents of street photography, the particular form of documentary photography that developed in New York during the 1940s, through the camerawork of such as Helen Levitt, Roy de Carava and Weegee.
Alongside the photographs, archive film and sound recordings of Lisette Model will evoke the photographer’s life, and there will be copies of magazines to which she contributed (Regards, Harper’s Bazaar, etc.)”

Elliott Erwitt at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris: “Personal Best”

Elliott Erwitt at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris: “Personal Best”

This show retraces Elliott Erwitt’s 60-year long career through more than 130 of his favorite photographs, including some rarely seen original prints. A photographer since 1948 and a member of Magnum Photos since 1953, he is a sharp, sometimes mischievous, observer of everyday life. Among his favorite subjects are children, dogs, beaches, politics and celebrities. A witness to the major events of the 20th century, this master of the instant is also a tireless wit, a subtle and poetic humorist whose work combines satire and melancholy. Elliott Erwitt has also made documentary films, some of which can be seen at the video library of the Maison Européenne de la Photographie.”

Sarah Moon at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.

This exhibition, organized in collaboration with Agarttha Arte, is part of the project entitled “Piedmont: a definition”, an ongoing collection of commissioned work by major photographers. Following on from Alain Fleischer in 2007, William Klein in 2008 and Gabriele Basilico in 2009, Sarah Moon has been given carte blanche to produce an artistic work focusing on the Royal Theatre in Turin. Sarah Moon has created a compelling evocation of this wonderful Theatre, where timeless features of the stage and backstage areas recall the world of Lewis Caroll, tales by Hans Christian Andersen, and Shakespeare’s tragedies.”
