Accomplices. The photographer and the artist around 1970
Lecture by Babette Mangolte
The nine stories told by this exhibition each concern the meeting of a photographer and an artist.
Their collaboration was sometimes one-off, sometimes it would last for years, but it always resulted in common fruit: a work of art, a process, a shared world. We are interested in the working experience of these “accomplices”, and how their collaboration shaped the work that was being created.The exhibition presents some of the most interesting representatives of experimental art from New York:the collaboration between photographer and director Babette Mangolte with choreographer, performer and artist Yvonne Rainer.
