ALPA is looking forward to the exhibition of our long-time friend Raymond Depardon. Following his works for years we can't wait to see what will be shown at the Fondation Cartier from October.

Raymond Depardon - La Vita Moderna

October 15, 2021 - March 13, 2022

Fondation Cartier, Milano

Triennale Milano and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain present the first solo exhibition of French photographer and filmmaker Raymond Depardon in Italy. Specially conceived by the artist for Triennale Milano with the complicity of French Artist Jean Michel Alberola, this exhibition extends the dialogue between Raymond Depardon and the Fondation Cartier, begun in the 1990s, and reflects the importance of the artist’s work in its collection.

Raymond Depardon emphasizes the continuity between the Italian and French landscapes and cultures, through well-known series or ensembles revealed to the public for the first time. The exhibition is built on several dualisms: contrasts of scale, the intermittent presence of the human figure, black and white and colour shots, and the contrast between the rural and the urban worlds.

As part of the geo-cultural ambitions of Triennale Milano and Fondation Cartier’s partnership, La Vita Moderna will be presented at the Power Station of Art in Shanghai in the fall of 2022.
