Nocturnes de Colombie, images contemporaines

17.09/2014 – 02.02/2014
Musée du Quai Branly, Paris

Presented within the framework of PHOTOQUAI, the exhibition aims to spotlight major artists in the Colombian scene: Juan Manuel Echavarria (Medellin,1947), Miguel Angel Rojas (Bogota, 1946), Oscar Muñoz (Popayan, 1951) and José Alejandro Restrepo (1959), each of whom has created a unique body of work using the photographic image in the widest sense.

Products of the same generation, they lived through the numerous stages of an uninterrupted civil war. While their work cannot be reduced to this common ground, the context is indeed worth mentioning, as the situation of Colombian society lies implicit in these artists’ works. Deliberately reduced to 4 artists, this selection provides each one their true place and evinces a structured intention to link their respective works. The route is organized along a succession of 4 sections, each reserved for one artist. This enables an appreciation of the works in the prime conditions and brings out the visual features of the works, particularly in their connection with the graphic gesture – the hand which writes or which draws.
