Paul Cézanne: <EM>Portrait d’Ambroise Vollard</EM> (1899)
Paul Cézanne: Portrait d'Ambroise Vollard (1899)
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Centre Pompidou  •  17 October 2018 - 25 February 2019

The first exhibition devoted to Cubism in France since 1953, the project's originality lies in its unusual stance, broadening a standpoint usually focused on its two inventors, Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, to other artists. These pioneers, soon followed by Fernand Léger and Juan Gris, reserved their ground-breaking experimental work for a small-scale gallery run by a young unknown dealer, Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, while artists like Albert Gleizes, Jean Metzinger, Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp, Robert and Sonia Delaunay brought the movement to the attention of critics and the public through their contributions to the Paris Salons.

 Containing 300 works and documents illustrating the influence of Cubism, the exhibition is presented chronologically in fourteen sections. Various masterpieces stand out, like Picasso's Portrait de Gertrude Stein (1906), Ambroise Vollard (1909) and Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler (1910) as well as groups of paintings and sculptures never yet seen together. The exhibition circuit highlights Cubism's momentous, multi-faceted development, going back to its primitivist sources and the Cubists' fascination with Gauguin and Cézanne. It also reflects the movement's formal journey from its initial Cézannian period – illustrated here by Picasso's extraordinary still life Pains et compotier sur une table (1909) – to a hermetic, analytical stage (1910-1912), before evolving towards a more synthetic version (1913-1917) with a return to representation and colour.

The exhibition is organized in partnership with Kunstmuseum, Basel.
The exhibition will be shown at Kunstmuseum, Basel, from March 31 to August 5, 2019.

Dorothea Lange: The Politics of Seeing
PARIS, FRANCE  •  Jeu de Paume  •  16 October 2018 - 27 January 2019
The Politics of Seeing features major works by the world famous American photographer Dorothea Lange (1895, Hoboken, New Jersey–1966, San Francisco, California), some of which have never
before been exhibited in France. The exhibition focuses on the extraordinary emotional power of Dorothea Lange’s work and on the context of her documentary practice. It features five specific series:
the Depression period (1933-1934), a selection of works from the Farm Security Administration (1935-1939), the Japanese American internment (1942), the Richmond shipyards (1942-1944) and a series
on a Public defender (1955-1957). Over one hundred splendid vintage prints taken between 1933 and 1957 are enhanced by the presence of documents and screenings broadening the scope of an oeuvre often familiar to the public through images such as White Angel Breadline (1933) and
Migrant Mother (1936), which are icons of photographic history.

The majority of prints in this exhibition belong to the Oakland Museum of California, where Lange’s considerable archive, donated to the museum after
her death by her husband Paul Shuster Taylor, is conserved.
