“CHRONORAMA. Photographic Treasures of the Twentieth Century” is the first major exhibition of masterpieces from the archives of Condé Nast, a portion of which was recently acquired by the Pinault Collection. The exhibition features more than 400 works that bring the twentieth century back to life through some of its most defining events, social phenomena, and illustrious personalities.
Spanning the century from the 1910s to the early 1980s, this selection features works by more than fifty artists from the world over, including the photographers Edward Steichen, Berenice Abbott, Cecil Beaton, Lee Miller, André Kertész, Horst P. Horst, Diane Arbus, Irving Penn, and Helmut Newton, and the illustrators Eduardo Garcia Benito, Helen Dryden, and George Wolfe Plank. This historical selection is put into perspective with “Chronorama Redux”, which offers a contemporary view of the Pinault Collection’s holdings through the work of four artists: Tarrah Krajnak, Erik N. Mack, Giulia Andreani, and Daniel Spivakov. This installation is spread out across four spaces in Palazzo Grassi, providing interludes in the chronological sequence of the main exhibition.
Curated by Matthieu Humery, Curator of Photography at Pinault Collection.
