The Vivian Maier exhibition at the Royal Museums of Turin, in the Chiablese Halls , from 9 February to 26 June tells about one of the greatest exponents of so-called street photography .
The VIVIAN MAIER INEDITA exhibition arrives in Turin after a first stop at the Musée du Luxembourg in Paris, aims to tell unknown or little-known aspects of the mysterious human and artistic story of the well-known photographer Vivian Maier , deepening new chapters or proposing hitherto unpublished works, such as the series of shots taken during his trip to Italy , in particular to Turin and Genoa, in the summer of 1959.
The Vivian Maier Inedita photographic exhibition in Turin presents over 250 shots , an artist known on the international scene since 2007, when his photographic corpus was discovered a few years after his death in 2009. The exhibition develops around recurring themes in the American photographer's production, mainly the street and the life that animated the popular neighborhoods in Europe and the United States, documenting the social changes of her time.
Glances, gestures, expressions, colors and childhood are intertwined in the exhibition itinerary, which on the occasion of the exhibition in the Chiablese Rooms of the Royal Museums of Turin will see the presentation to the public of an unpublished repertoire of shots made by the artist in Turin in 1959, as well as a presentation of Vivian Maier 's personal items. The exhibition, curated by Anne Morin, is organized by diChroma photography in collaboration with the Royal Museums and the Ares company in Turin, the John Maloof Collection in Chicago and the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York.
