Faithful to its vocation to mix shopping and art, Beaugrenelle Paris gives art stage pride of place again with an exhibition of photographer Martin Parr called Foodographie.
After an exhibition in partnership with the FIAC “Think Big” back in 2015, Felice Varini’s temporary works in 2017 or even the super performance of vegetal designer Alexis Tricolor in early 2018, it’s time for the famous British photographer to take over the atrium.
A good dish is to be enjoyed with your taste buds as much as with your eyes. From June 30 to September 3, 2018, Beaugrenelle invites us for free to enjoy ourselves with the artist’s photographs. At a time when culinary photography is riding high and skyrockets thanks to Instagram, it’s time to go and admire and get inspired by these works blending a very British humor, pop culture and love of good food.
In this unique exhibition, created by the Magnum Photos company and Manifesto, Martin Parr takes a mischievous look at food, after observing the whole world’s eating habits for over 20 years.
The selection of 26 photos with bright colors, printed in XXL format, evolves around 3 meal highlights: culinary art showing all the details of meals; finger food giving pride of place to the dishes we eat on-the-go and with our fingers; and dessert showing sweet treats in all their forms.
Come along and discover how the artist, through his compositions and especially through his close-up shots, manages to convey us the love of gastronomy and excite our imagination.
In other words, here’s an as gourmet exhibition as possible, whetting our appetite aesthetically and to be discovered from July to September 2018!
Another good deal, please note that this free exhibition is accompanied by tastings in the following weekends: July 7 & 8 and July 14 and 15 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., so that you can mix visit and greed.
