Ugo Mulas at the HCB Foundation

Ugo Mulas (1928-1973) was a major figure of twentieth century Italian photography. Nevertheless, his work remains little known in France. The solo exhibition now on display at HCB Foundation in Paris is the first of its kind and pays homage to this great observer and interpreter of the novelty that appeared in the art world in Italy and in the United States in the 1960s.
The exhibition itinerary brings together, for the most part, the photographs selected by Mulas for publication in La Fotografia (Einaudi, 1973), his last, now legendary, book, an essential testimony of his work and his reflections. La Fotografia (The Photography) is a unique work. Through brief sequences of images introduced by text, Mulas analyzed the art of his time and made portraits of artists with whom he associated while creating their work as an intimate relationship with time. For Mulas, all moments are fleeting, they are all worthy, and the least significant moment can be in fact the most exceptional. Besides its documentary value, this group of work has a strong autobiographical tone. This selection closes with the Verifications, the final seminal chapter, which will forever establish the speculative dimension of his work. The exhibition, composed of some sixty black-and-white vintage prints, is presented in collaboration with the Ugo Mulas Archives (Milan) and Giuliano Sergio, associate curator. It is co-produced with the Point du Jour, art center/editor (Cherbourg), which published Ugo Mulas’s book La Photographie in French, reproducing the format, text, and photographs of the Italian first edition.
