Dialectical Landscape - Thinking Central Park
Architecture | Galerie Richard, New York, United-States | Wednesday 5 July 2017 - Sunday 27 August 2017
Skyscrapers and Central Park co-exist dialectically. "Central Park is essentially a void. A 13.123 x 2.625 feet void. It was conceived on the basis of an idea of spatiality where density was to be developed, but it is the density of the buildings of Manhattan, in their hyper-growth expansion, that has traced out that recreational rectangle for the dispersion of Homo faber. That is, the park is a void because it works as a courtyard inside the urban detention". In Thinking Central Park the artist fills the space with constructions considered as shelters. At the opposite in Dialectical Landscape he adds some empty spaces for recreational or mobility purposes.

Photography | Galerie Thierry Bigaignon, Paris, France | Saturday 13 May 2017 - Saturday 9 September 2017
No American road trip looms larger in our collective consciousness than the one bound west, and has been both the favorite subject and a formidable challenge for most artists, from Robert Frank to Jack Kerouac. In 2015, Italian-born photographer Renato D’Agostin took the challenge and travelled the 7,439 miles from New York to Los Angeles on his 1983 BMW motorcycle, developing film in hotel sinks along the way. This initiatic journey gave rise to a series of bright and contrasted images, overwhelming with beauty, subtlety and grace, entitled "7439".

Jean Honoré Fragonard (1732–1806)—one of the most forward-looking and inventive artists of the 18th century—was equally skilled in painting, drawing, and etching. Unlike many old masters for whom drawing was a preparatory tool, Fragonard explored the potential of chalk, ink, and wash to create sheets that were works of art in their own right.

Photographs from the Collection of Carla Sozzani
Between Art and Fashion
Photography | MBAL Musée des beaux-arts, Le Locle, Switzerland | Sunday 18 June 2017 - Sunday 15 October 2017
It is rare for a museum to dedicate an exhibition to a private collection. Generally, it is a matter of borrowing a work of art here or there, and discretely indicating the name of the generous lender if the latter does not wish to remain anonymous. With this exhibition, Carla Sozzani, a legendary figure of contemporary elegance, welcomes us into her intimate space. Her collection of photographs, which covers the 20th and 21st centuries, is remarkable in all respects.
