Martine Franck — Venus d’ailleurs



Martine Franck
Venus d’ailleurs

Past: October 5, 2011 → January 8, 2012

Member of the Magnum agency since 1983 and president of the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Martine Franck began a series of portraits of artists in 1965. Focusing on artists ‘from elsewhere’ living in Paris since 1945, this series constitutes an illustrated encyclopedia of modern and contemporary art. The show features over sixty prints of painters and sculptors in their studios, from Pierre Alechinsky to Zao Wou Ki. These photographs reveal the vitality of the French art scene and the way Paris continues to attract artists.

This exhibition was commissioned by the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, as part of the series “Étranges Étrangers”.
