Pour l’amour de Paris

The City of Milan | Cultura, Polo Musei Storici e Musei Archeologici, the Fratelli Alinari Fondazione per la Storia della Fotografia and the Brassaï Estate present at Palazzo Morando in Milan, previewing in Italy, Brassaï. Pour l’amour de Paris, the big exhibition dedicated to the intense work of one of the 20th-century’s greatest photographers: Gyula Halász, better known as Brassaï.
The exhibition, curated by Agnès de Gouvion Saint Cyr and conceived for the City of Paris by Philippe RibeyrollesBrassaï’s nephew and manager of the Brassaï Estate –, offers a selection of around 260 original photos narrating the exceptional story of a passion for over fifty years that united Brassaï to the most hidden recesses of Paris as well as to all those intellectuals, artists, well-to-do families, whores and misfits who contributed to the city’s legendary fame.
A unique opportunity to discover the passionate work of this extraordinary artist who, born in 1899 at Brasso (modern-day Brasov, in Transylvania), arrived in Paris during his childhood and, for the rest of his life, he would hold this city as the source of his reflections and as the fil rouge to his oeuvre.
The exhibition is part of Expo in the city and is organised with the patronage of the French Embassy in Italy and in collaboration with the City of Paris, Exhibitions Department, and the Institut français Milan. The event will also include seminars at Palazzo Morando and a cinema retrospective, provided by the Institut français Milan in its own cinema theatre on Corso Magenta 63, with free screenings on 31 March and 14 and 21 April 2015, on Tuesdays at 8 pm.
