RENCONTRES D'ARLES 2010 HEAVY DUTY AND RAZOR SHARP 60 EXHIBITIONS OF PHOTOGRAPHY JULY 3rd TO SEPTEMBER 19th 2010 The Rencontres d’Arles 2010 feature six trails: through Argentina, rock music, and traditional film photography; with the friends of the LUMA Foundation; one about changes and changeovers; and a sixth on French prisons. This edition enjoys the expertise of twenty curators—heads of leading international institutions, artistic directors, and collectors. Each trail begins with a guest of honour or an emblematic show. THE ARGENTINA TRAIL For the first time in France, León Ferrari shows his anti-clerical work and his distrust of dictatorships. Contemporary Argentinian photography, concerned with the painful rendering of recent history and the search for a “Latino” identity, is represented by: Leandro Berra, Marcos Adandia, Gabriel Valansi, Marcos López and Sebastiano Mauri, Oscar Bony, David Lamelas. THE ROCK TRAIL I Am a Cliché: Echos of the Punk Aesthetic: the influence of music on photographic and video creativity, from the ‘60s to now (Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Stephen Shore, Christian Marclay, Jamie Reid, Robert Malaval, and more). Mick Jagger has agreed, for the Rencontres d’Arles, to create the first exhibition retracing his career, through the lenses of the finest portraitists. In an exclusive show, Jean Pigozzi presents 40 years of shots from the heart of the jet set. Claude Gassian stages a retrospective of 40 years of portraits from the pop/rock scene. THE FILM PHOTOGRAPHY TRAIL Shoot! Existential Photography: amazing self-portraits holding a rifle, taken on fairground shooting stands in the mid-20th century and now appropriated by artists. The Polaroid collection reflects the entire history of a photographic practice. 130 political photomontages from Mao’s China, unearthed and decoded by Chinese artist Zhang Dali. With Camera Lucida(s): Note(s) on Photography, the Musée Nicéphore-Niépce has carte blanche to display original multimedia tools that explain the photographic practices of the past. The world’s last darkrooms, poetically photographed by Michel Campeau. Augusto Ferrari: photographs used to prepare the painting of murals at San Miguel Church, Buenos Aires. Ernst Haas has drawn his talent from the fantastic potential of Kodachrome film. Photographic Heritage features a selection of self-portraits from France’s national collections. THE FRIENDS OF THE LUMA FOUNDATION TRAIL Fischli/Weiss exhibit recent work laced with ambiguity and humour. Luke Fowler and Peter Hutton are also guests of the LUMA Foundation. For the Discovery Award, the Rencontres d’Arles invites the five members of the LUMA Foundation’s core group to nominate fifteen artists to compete and show their work.
