Bettina Rheims
Oct 8 – Dec 5, 2021
Institut pour la Photographie
Lille, France

The Institut pour la Photographie presents PERSPECTIVES, a new program of ten exhibitions. This third exhibition program will focus on the Institute’s future plans and ambitions before a temporary closing of the site for renovation work.

PERSPECTIVES will offer a first presentation of the archive collections of Bettina Rheims, Agnès Varda and Jean-Louis Schoellkopf, recently entrusted to the Institute. It will showcase three emblematic projects from Bettina Rheims’ career: La Chapelle (2018), Les Détenues (2014), Rose c’est Paris (2010); an exclusive exhibition of Jean-Louis Schoellkopf’s landmark works, reflecting his approach to portraying working-class and urban life; and a presentation of Agnès Varda’s first photo exhibition in her studio rue Daguerre in 1954.

The PERSPECTIVES program will also cover contemporary creation with original exhibitions of work by Aurélien Froment and Ezio d’Agostino, winners of the Institute’s Research and Creation Support Program for their work on the photographer and filmmaker Pierre Zucca and on the phenomena of religious apparitions respectively. The Moroccan artist Yoriyas will take over the building and its outdoor spaces as part of his artist residency and fellowship in Roubaix.
