Zoe Leonard: Analogue

Venue: The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, second floor, MoMA, New York, USA.
The exhibition is organized by Roxana Marcoci, Senior Curator, with Drew Sawyer, Beaumont and Nancy Newhall Curatorial Fellow, Department of Photography.

Analogue by Zoe Leonard (US, 1961), is a landmark art project comprising 412 photographs in black and white and colour made over the course of a decade. Zoe has taken the photographs with a vintage 1940s Rolleiflex camera exploring the analogue photography techniques while photographing the disappearing storefronts and old products such as the outdated and no longer produced Kodak films in Manhattan’s Lower East Side and other places.

Claude Cahun – Photographies, dessins, écrites

Dates: July 3 –  August 30,  2015
Venue: Médiathèque Jacques Demy, Nantes, France

The experimental self-portraits by Claude Cahun (1894 – 1954), born Lucy Schwob in Nantes in 1894, have gained international recognition and have been exhibited around the world. However this exhibition in Nantes presents not only surrealist artist and lesbian Claude Cahun’s photographs but also her graphic works, publications and letters.

The exhibition comes with a nice richly illustrated eight page programme (in French) about the events organised as an extension of the theme of the exhibition Claude Cahun – Photographies, dessins, écrites. Most of the events and lectures of the programme will take place in September and October 2015 after the exhibition has closed.

Germaine Krull (1897-1985) – Un destin de photographe

Dates: June 2 – September 27, 2015
Venue: Jeu de Paume, Paris, France

From nudes to surreal collage, street scenes to portraits, a new exhibition charts the astonishingly modern work of maverick photographer Germaine Krull. A pioneer of photojournalism, bisexual Germaine Krull moved across Europe in the 1920s and 30s mixing with left-leaning intellectuals and pushing at boundaries, both in her work and as a woman. Germaine Krull then settled in Paris where she worked in the 1930s. After serving as a war photographer in 1943–1945, she moved to Thailand and then settled in India, where she converted to Buddhism and worked to preserve its cultural heritage.
Curator: Michel Frizot
