“In the course of photography’s brief history we can see how this diabolical, hybrid medium began to insist increasingly on its place in the arts, especially since the 1960s and the coming of Conceptualism.” – Jan Dibbets
The Musée d’Art moderne has called on Jan Dibbets – whose own contribution to Conceptual art was decisive – for a reinterpretation of the history of photography from its invention up to the present day. Rejecting a conventional approach in what is his first venture into curating, Dibbets sets out to pursue the line he has been following since the 1960s, and which marked his exhibitions at the Musée d’Art Moderne in 1980, 1994 and 2010.
On view until July 17th, 2016, at Musée d’Art moderne, 11 Avenue du Président Wilson 75016, Paris.
