PARIS PHOTO PUBLIC PROGRAMMING 2016

PUBLIC PROGRAMMING 2016
THE PENCIL OF CULTURE
THE CENTRE POMPIDOU, 10 YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHY ACQUISITIONS
Exhibition sponsored by J.P. Morgan, Official partner of Paris Photo
In collaboration with the Centre Pompidou, Paris Photo will host the exhibition, the Pencil of Culture, highlighting 10 years of acquisitions by the museum’s photography department.
With more than 40,000 pieces, the Centre Pompidou’s photography collection is one of the most important in Europe and is a unique ensemble, presenting a complete history of modern and contemporary photography.
Borrowing its title from the ever first photography book,
The pencil of nature, published by William Fox Talbot in 1844, this exhibition will demonstrate that the photographic image is not only a reproduction of nature, but also a marker of culture.
Works from more than 40 artists will be exhibited for the 20th edition of Paris Photo, in the Salon d’Honneur.
Exhibited artists include:
Richard Avedon, Valérie Belin, Anne Collier, Brassaï, Miklós Erdely, Andreas Gursky, Germaine Krull, Etienne Léopold, Sherry Levine, René Magritte, Marc Riboud, August Sander, Allan Sekula, Alina Szapocznikow, Maurice Tabard, Wolfgang Tillmans, Raoul Ubac, Jeff Wall…
The Platform is an experimental forum showcasing, over the course of four days, a series of conversations according to several themes:
HOW TO COLLECT PHOTOGRAPHY TODAY?
Photography now occupies an important position within most large art museums. Recognized as art, the photographic medium continuously enriches their collections. Clément Chéroux, chief curator and Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska, curator, both at the Photography Department of the Centre Pompidou / Musée National d’Art Moderne, together with their hosts will discuss directions in which photography collections could or should develop.
The cult magazine Provoke changed he history of photography. Coinciding with the exhibition, Provoke, between protestation and performance, currently on view at Le Bal, Diane Dufour, director-founder and co-curator will propose a cross-analysis of Provoke, its historical context and its ties to the emergence of performance art in Japan in the 1960s.
PHOTOGRAPHY BEYOND THE IMAGE
Jens Hoffmann, Deputy Director of the Jewish Museum, New York and Senior Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, leads a discussion on how the use of digital manipulation, the selection of specific cameras or lenses, and the choice of photo paper or specific development techniques are purposely employed in order to produce photographic works that seek to go beyond the production of an image, thus pointing towards the materiality, color, form, surface and physicality of the photographs themselves.
PHOTOGRAPHY & CINEMA IN PRACTICE
Matthieu Orléan, artistic consultant at La Cinémathèque française, will lead a discussion with filmmakers, artists, critics, and curators on vernacular photography in cinematic production and the role of still photography in the history of art. He will also hold a discussion with two artists on their conjoined and paradoxical practices of photography and cinema.
THE ARTIST AS…
Pascal Beausse, head of the photographic collections at Centre National des Arts Plastiques, will lead a discussion with artists on the different roles that artists undertake, from the act of creation to the diffusion and exhibition of their images: the artist as curator, collector, investigator, activist, poet…

PERNOD RICARD OMAR VICROR DIOP MINDSET
Senegalese photographer Omar Victor Diop portrays 17 Pernod Ricard employees for the Group’s 41st Artistic Campaign.Africa is the
“new frontier” for Pernod Ricard, which opened six direct affiliates on the continent in the last five years.
Therefore, it is only natural that the Group gave “carte blanche” to Senegalese artist Omar Victor Diop. As a renowned photographer whose style is rooted in the continent where he grew up, Omar was able to capture the relationship between employees of the
African affiliates and their colleagues worldwide.He incorporated them into costumes especially created by the Senegalese designer Selly Raby Kane in the shape of medallion portraits that often appear in African stylistic compositions.Pride of belonging, joy of being together, and audacity of the experience, are the words if not the “Mindset” that characterized this new artistic experience presented by Pernod Ricard and driven by its ambassadors: its employees.
RUINART ERWIN OLAF LIGHT
“Photos, like champagne, need darkness to find light.” Erwin Olaf
Maison Ruinart is celebrating its 120th anniversary since its first artistic collaboration. In 1896, the Ruinart family commissioned the young Czech artist, Alphonse Mucha, to create an advertising poster. This poster was a sensation in its time. In celebration of this anniversary, the Maison chose artist Erwin Olaf, to capture its immense chalk cellars, recently classified by Unesco as a World Heritage Site. Light by Erwin Olaf was inspired by the unique natural prints found on the cellar walls; traces of human labour and amusing drawings by unknown authors. These discoveries can be compared with the works of prehistoric art. Light is a kind of flashback to the beginnings of photography, a homage to the art of drawing with light.
