EXHIBITION: JACQUES-HENRI LARTIGUE - BIBI
at The Photographers’ Gallery, London, UK

The exhibition focuses on photographs from the 1920s that depict Lartigue’s marriage to Madeleine Messager, known as Bibi, his first wife and the mother of his only child. This is the first international showcase of the exhibition following its unveiling earlier this year in Les Rencontres d’Arles.

Bibi features dozens of black and white photographs including images from the couple’s visit to London. The photographs trace Lartigue and Bibi’s relationship from their early days as a loving couple and glamorous socialites - to subsequent upheavals and calamities which eventually led to their separation.

The exhibition project Pacific Standard Time – Art in Los Angeles, 1950-1980 traces the development of the Los Angeles art scene during the post-war period, when the city on the Pacific hosted an impressively varied and versatile art scene, thus proving that it was more than Hollywood and a sprawling metropolis in the land of sunshine and palm trees.
Ed Bereal was born in 1937 in Riverside, California. While still a student at Chouinard Art Institute, his work was included in the controversial 1961 exhibition War Babies at Henry Hopkins’s Huysman Gallery. Bereal’s assemblages challenge the viewer, directly addressing identity politics and racial stereotypes prevalent in the U.S. in the 1960s and beyond. These works also engage with uncomfortable and complex moments in global history, such as Nazi-era Germany. Bereal has been a mentor to several generations of artists and has taught at universities throughout the United States. (source)
Exhibition dates:Mar. 15 - Jun. 10, 2012 at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin.

This is part of the exhibition ‘Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the present – A Different History of Photography’ at Fotostiftung Schweiz in Zurich.
“In the history of photography the photobook plays a major role not only  in publicising photographs, but also as an independent means of  expression. The significance of many photographers’ works only emerges  when presented in book form, in the coherent sequence or series of  images. Content, design and printing quality combine to produce an  intricate architectural whole.” (read more)
