SMITH

SPECTROGRAPHIES

SPECTROGRAPHIES

16 Feb – 26 May 2019
Self-metamorphosis plays a central role in the artistic practice of French artist SMITH (b. 1985), whose poetic images invite reflection and evoke the memory of absent bodies. The Spectographies resemble laboratory images and reference new technologies that allow us to see, touch and communicate with physically absent beings through the screen. SMITH uses an infrared camera to explore and transform anatomy, and to seek to represent what lies beyond the body. The resulting thermographic images, o… more

Laura Letinsky

L'EMPRISE DU TEMPS

L'EMPRISE DU TEMPS

16 Feb – 26 May 2019
The work of Laura Letinsky (b. 1962) sends us back in time. Shooting with Polaroid Type 55 film – the famous instant-development process that creates a single image – Letinsky photographs fruit, flowers, food, cutlery, and other everyday objects. Those familiar with the Canadian artist’s work will recognize her still lifes, a genre in which she has stood out since the 1990s. Like many photographers working prior to the digital age, Letinsky used a Polaroid for tests. But just a… more

Viviane Sassen

Hot Mirror

Hot Mirror

16 Feb – 26 May 2019
In fairy tales, the mirror often symbolizes a door to another world. Dutch artist Viviane Sassen (b. 1972) sees her photographic work as a mirror, a means of evoking the world of dreams and exploring the subconscious in everyday moments. The exhibition Hot Mirror, which includes pieces from the past ten years, weaves an astonishing narrative from the work of this internationally acclaimed artist: a sort of self-portrait. Sassen’s photography captures the strange, the magical and the wondro… more

Alex Prager

Silver Lake Drive

Silver Lake Drive

3 Nov 2018 – 27 Jan 2019
MBAL is hosting the first retrospective of American photographer and filmmaker Alex Prager (b. 1979), one of the most iconic artists of our time. Prager’s unique body of work, built up over the past ten years, consists of photographs and films whose common denominator is a meticulously crafted mise-en-scène. An undeniable sense of Hollywood and pop culture permeates the work of this self-taught, Los Angeles-based artist. This exhibition brings together her most important series of p… more

Old Future

3 Nov 2018 – 27 Jan 2019
In his Old Future series, American photographer Erik Madigan Heck (b. 1983) explores the intersection of photography and painting as he borrows from and bends the genres of fashion photography, landscape painting and portraiture. Heck quickly gained prominence as a fashion photographer – his work has appeared in Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair and The New York Times Magazine – while at the same time making a name for himself in the art world thanks to a sui generis photographic la… more

In the Vicinity of Narrative

18 Feb – 27 May 2018
Todd Hido – In the vicinity of narrative
MBAL presents the first exhibition in Switzerland on one of the most admired and influential American photographers of his generation, Todd Hido (1968). In the Vicinity of Narrative reveals an eminently cinematic work, with images as magnetic as they are strange. From houses seen from the outside, abandoned interiors, blurred landscapes taken from the windshield of his car, female characters photographed in motels rooms, Hido's photographs are … more

Garry Winogrand

Women are Beautiful

Women are Beautiful

18 Feb – 27 May 2018
In 1975, Garry Winogrand (1928-1984), considered one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, published the photobook Women are Beautiful. A documentary photographer who notably worked for Fortune and LIFE magazines, Winogrand was a keen observer of American life throughout his entire career. His favorite site was New York, his hometown. The cacophony of the streets was something that particularly attracted this photographer's eye. His style of instant photography thereby reveals … more

Thibault Brunet

Territoires Circonscrits

Territoires Circonscrits

18 Feb – 27 May 2018
The work of Thibault Brunet (1982) inscribes itself within landscape photography, particularly in the tradition of major photographic surveys of the 19th and 20th centuries. Yet, this artist has never owned a traditional camera. As his previous work has shown, he excels in depicting the virtual world. This time, Territories circonscrits, his latest series, features real places. Equipped with a 3D scanner made available to him by Leica Geosystems, the artist records 360 degrees of the environment… more

Guy Oberson

Naked Cothes: After Arbus and Mapplethorpe

Naked Cothes: After Arbus and Mapplethorpe

18 Feb – 27 May 2018
One cannot look at the works of Guy Oberson (1960) absentmindedly. A force emerges that forces the visitor to linger. One’s vision becomes capable of discerning forms little by little, just like how, in the dark, it becomes accustomed to the darkness. Painter and drawer, the Swiss artist has a preference for pierre noir drawing, and it is not uncommon for him to take as a model photographs of his own or from the press. Here, Oberson draws on the works of famous American photographers Diane… more

Between Art and Fashion

Between Art and Fashion

Photographs from the Collection of Carla Sozzani

18 Jun – 15 Oct 2017



It is rare for a museum to dedicate an exhibition to a private collection. Generally, it is a matter of borrowing a work of art here or there, and discretely indicating the name of the generous lender if the latter does not wish to remain anonymous. With this exhibition, Carla Sozzani, a legendary figure of contemporary elegance, welcomes us into her intimate space. Her collection of photographs, which covers the 20th and 21st centuries, is remarkable in all respects. More than 70 photographs… more

Document

18 Jun – 15 Oct 2017


Celebrity photography is a genre that never runs out of steam. Portraits of movie stars, artists, statesmen, musicians, athletes… glossy magazines know that success is assured when photography prompts us to dream. Henry Leutwyler (b.1961), a New York photographer of Swiss origins, knows something about this – he who has made portraits of celebrities like Julia Roberts, Michelle Obama or Rihanna, and who works for such prestigious magazines as Vanity Fair, New York Times Magazine, … more

Utopia

18 Jun – 15 Oct 2017




Ina Jang (b.1982), a South Korean artist based in New York, is invited to exhibit her latest project. Through her new series she explores the theme of feminine identity with reference to the fashion image that she also cultivates in her work. Made from images found on Japanese magazine websites, the Utopia series features silhouettes of female bodies in suggestive poses. The artist did not modify the poses or the hair, but we find her signature in the technique of collage and the color treat… more

Photobook - The Cult of the Book

Photobook - The Cult of the Book

Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards

18 Jun – 15 Oct 2017



The Photobook show inscribes itself in the wake of L’art se livre, a 2014 exhibition dedicated to art and artists’ books. In the framework of this photographic season, the museum focuses on the cult of the photography book, a phenomenon more current than ever. Since the early 1990s, the number of publishers interested in photography has not stopped growing, while digital technologies have placed editing tools directly in the hands of photographers. As much at the level of its cont… more
