Les Rencontres d'Arles

Every summer for almost 5 years now, Luma has invited the International Photography Festival LesRencontres d’Arles to join the programme presented at the Parc des Ateliers. Luma Arles is pleased to have contributed to the definition of the Prix Découverte which it supported from 2002 to 2016. And from now on, it is continuing its support of the Rencontres d’Arles through the Luma Rencontres Dummy Book Award, inaugurated in 2015. The Train, RFK’s Last Journey Paul Fusco, Rein Jelle Terpstra & Philippe Parreno On 8 June 1968, three days after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, his body was carried by a funeral train from New York City to Washington D.C. The Train looks at this historical event through three distinct works. The first is a group of color photographs by commissioned photographer Paul Fusco. Taken from the funeral train, the images capture mourners who lined the railway tracks to pay their final respects. Looking from the opposite perspective, the second work features photographs and home movies by the spectators themselves, collected by Dutch artist Rein Jelle Terpstra in his project The People’s View (2014-18). The third, a work titled 8 June 1968 by French artist Philippe Parreno, is a 70mm film reenactment of the funeral train’s journey, which in Parreno’s words, “shows the point of view of the dead.” Bringing historical and contemporary works together in dialogue, this powerful, multidisciplinary exhibition sheds new light on a key moment in American culture and memory. Ann Ray The Unfinished — Lee Mcqueen Ann Ray met Lee McQueen in 1996, when he had just been made the artistic director of Givenchy. An immediate friendship was formed; over 13 years, until his death in 2010, Lee McQueen let Ann Ray photograph everything: preparations, runway shows, intimate moments. From this confidential relationship emerged 35,000 analog photographs. The exhibition The Unfinished — Lee McQueen immerses us in the world of a man who was long considered fashion’s enfant terrible, but who was above all a visionary poet and a talented creator of images.
