Irving Penn exhibition and drinks
Let's celebrate Internation's 10th birthday and imagine the 100th! If it looks too much, don't worry, just join this event.
Protected content the centenary of the birth of Irving Penn ( Protected content ), one of the greatest photographers of the20th century. This exhibition, organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and The Réunion des musées nationaux– Protected content , in collaboration with The Irving Penn Foundation, is the first major retrospective of the American artist’s work in France since his death. It looks back over his seventy-year career, with more than Protected content prints, all produced by the artist himself, as well as a selection of his drawings and paintings. The Irving Penn exhibition offers a comprehensive vision of the range of genres he worked in: fashion, still life, portraits, nudes, beauty, cigarettes and debris. With his fine arts background, Irving Penn developed a body of visual work that is defined by its elegant simplicity, a taste for minimalism and an astonishing rigour, evident from the studio to the darkroom, where he perfected his unique photographic prints.
Please buy your tickets in advance and let's meet inside the exhibition entrance. We will wait for 15 minutes together (in front of the ticket control, not at the main gate). If you can't attend on time, please come to Protected content .
After this exhibition, we can have some drinks together at Minipalais and talk on photography and fashion. For example, what would you do if someone posts your favorite landscape photos you took during a trip on her Facebook (without specifying the photographer)? Do you think you can't even leave comments that those are yours if you've sent these photos on a messenger/email?
Hope to see you there!
