At Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain
The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art (Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain) focuses its attention on the world of automobiles with its latest photography exhibition ‘Autophoto‘. Since their first appearance, cars have manipulated our conceptions of distance and time and shaped the way we perceive geographical spaces. Automobiles have also influenced the photographic approach and practice, providing photographers with not only a new subject but also a new way of exploring the world. The exhibition brings together works by ninety photographers, including well-known figures such as Jacques-Henri Lartigue, William Eggleston, Justine Kurland and Jacqueline Hassink, who have focused on automobiles as the subject or used it as a means of expression. With over 500 works on display, the exhibition examines the many facets of automobile culture – aesthetic, social, environmental and industrial – as represented in photography from the beginning of the 20th century to present.
