As the festival season looms, such as La Gacilly, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, Le Point offers you a selection of ten major exhibitions in Paris and in the region.
At the Maillol museum, Paris 7th, until August 15.
Espace Richaud, in Versailles, until June 10.
This is arguably Strand's best-known portrait. The exhibition that the Cartier-Bresson foundation devotes to this artist, who died in 1976, allows you to discover the rest of his work. "A more committed work than one might think first on board", underlines Clément Chéroux, director of the foundation. In fact, this artist left us with powerful images testifying to the living conditions of the outcasts of the Mexican, Italian, Irish, Egyptian and Ghanaian societies where the artist traveled from the 1930s to the 1960s.
Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, Paris 3rd, until April 23.
Agence Roger-Viollet, Paris 6th, until June 24.
Ultra-realistic (as here with the control room of the Fukushima power plant in Japan, the day after the disaster of March 11, 2011), they indeed leave a hint of manipulation floating around. But the artist assures him: he does not use any digital artifice. These images do not leave, in any case, not indifferent.
Jeu de Paume, Paris 8th, until May 28.
European House of Photography (MEP), Paris 4th, until May 21.
Polka gallery, Paris 3rd, until May 6.
Useless to seek on the cartels a semblance of explanation, these photos are without title. They leave it up to the viewer to interpret what is in front of them, at their fingertips. "A potential place of tenderness but also of influence, emancipation and oppression, the family acts here as a mirror of society as a whole", analyze Julie Héraut and Diane Dufour, the two curators of the exhibition.
Le Bal, Paris 18th, until May 21.
Citéco, Paris 17th, until May 7.
Galerie Le Réverbère, Lyon, until July 22.
