ANDRÉ KERTÉSZ – MIRRORING LIFE
Exhibition opening 14 September 2017, 5.30pm
André Kertész (1894-1985) is renowned for the exceptional contribution he made to the visual language of 20th-century photography with his poetic work. Foam presents a retrospective of his oeuvre, examining his early work created in his homeland of Hungary (1912 –1925), his time in Paris – where between 1925 and 1936, he was a leading figure in avant-garde photography – through to New York, where he lived for nearly fifty years.
Mirroring Life features more than 200 photographs, offering a chronological overview of Kertész’ artistic oeuvre. Kertész’ most respected work is shot in black-and-white, but the exhibition also features a selection of less well-known colour photographs. Mirroring Life is an homage to the photographer whom Henri Cartier-Bresson viewed as one of his mentors.
The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 14 September. You are welcome from 5.30 pm onwards. RSVP: bit.ly/RSVP-14sep
On the same evening Foam 3h: Foam x Ruang Mes 56 will be opened.
This exhibition is organised with Jeu de Paume, Paris, in collaboration with La Médiathèque d l’architecture et du patrimoine, ministère de la Culture et de la Communication – France and diChroma photography.
Foam is supported by BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Delta Lloyd, Gemeente Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
