Sabine Weiss: Les villes, la rue, l'autre

20 June–15 October 2018

Exhibition Overview

Sabine Weiss

Sabine Weiss, Place de la Concorde, Paris, France, 1953, photograph.

Through this exhibition covering the confused, precarious post-war years between 1945 and 1960, the Centre Pompidou provides a new interpretation of Sabine Weiss's photographs, which belong to a movement unjustly perceived as "sentimentalist". Her rich and varied output, seen here through a fresh look at her work based on her own archives, illustrates a commitment fostering a reconciliation with reality.
