David de Beyter
Autumn at the Institut
Nov 3 – Dec 24, 2023
Institut pour la Photographie
Lille, France

After opening its doors to the public on the occasion of five in situ previewing programmes in 2019 (extraORDINAIRE), 2020 (EN-QUÊTE), 2021 (Charles de Gaulle under the eye of the photographers and Perspectives), and in the spring of 2023 (Spring at the Institut), the Institut pour la photographie is presenting its sixth and final preview program before work begins on its building.

From November 3 – December 24,  2023, the Institut will reopen for an autumn season that features eight contemporary artists whose work reflects a range of social issues. Inspired by unique stories, their sensitive and reflective approaches open up new ways of collectively questioning our relationship with the world, from the intimate to the political.

From traditional prints to photomatons, archives and screenings, this new season, with its emphasis on video, explores the different forms of the photographic medium.

With David de Beyter, Olivier Despicht, Claire Fasulo, Bertrand Gadenne, Mohammad Hadi Rahnaward, Justine Pluvinage, Bettina Rheims and SAEIO.

    “A body of work starts by daydreaming…” –Mary Heilmann

    On May 2nd, we will open ‘Daydream Nation’ at its 22nd Street gallery, exploring Mary Heilmann’s ongoing interest in drawing as a form of transcribing memory. Curated by artist Gary Simmons, Heilmann’s friend and former student and colleague at New York’s School of Visual Arts, the exhibition celebrates her talent for distilling complex images and ideas into deceptively simple geometric forms and abstract gestural marks.
