This week, Parisian arts center the Jeu de Paume on Place de la Concorde is celebrating its 10 years devoted to the image and invites you to discover and share numerous surprises throughout next weekend. Special offer, admissions to the exhibitions are free on June Saturday 7 and Sunday 8, from 11am to 7pm.
Two major photography exhibitions are worth seeing this month in this venue established in the Tuileries garden. You can buy one ticket for both exhibitions.
Kati Horna, from June 3, to September 21. This is the first retrospective of the work of Hungarian photojournalist Kati Horna (1912-2000), who started out as a photographer in Hungary, at the age of 21 in the context of the European avant-garde movements of the 1930s. Why is it worth seeing? Kati Horna, forced to flee her country in the 1930s and landed in Mexico, was known above all for her images of the Spanish Civil War (1937-39). According to Le Jeu de Paume “Her work is characterised by both its adherence to the principles of surrealist photography and her very personal approach to photographic reportage.” All of her 150 works, mostly vintage prints, exposed in this gallery are little know and will take you through 50 years of world history and culture.
Oscar Munoz, from June 3, to September 21. Why is it worth seeing? The Colombian photographer born in 1951, is regarded as one of the most talented artist of his generation for questioning the ephemeral instant before or after taking a picture. His exhibition, Protographies, sums up his personality: he is a Jack of all trades. Photography, printmaking, drawing, installations, video and sculpture. He is good at everything he does. You’ll be blown away by his visual compositions.
