10.17.2015 - 01.17.2016


Since its opening, each autumn la maison rouge has shown a major international collection. Beginning October 17, 2015, Artur Walther's exceptional collection of photography will be on view. Over twenty years, Artur Walther has assembled significant and cohesive ensembles, beginning with German photography, then American, and later African and Asian photography.
Après Eden will present a selection of over 900 works by some fifty artists. Historical photography, daguerreotypes, contemporary photography, video works, journals and late nineteenth-century albums have been chosen by the curator, Simon Njami, to form an itinerary which takes in landscapes, faces, performance, portraiture, and anthropometric and ethnographic essays.

Two artists represented by the MAGNIN-A Gallery are exhibited : Malick Sidibé and Seydou Keita.
