PARIS VU, VISIONS OF THE CITY

May 3–31, 2007
Alliance Francaise in Toronto
24 Spadina Rd

La Tour Eiffel; l’Arc de Triomphe; les Champs-
Élysées. Paris
is often characterized by romance and splendour
but la
villelumière is truly an assemblage of
contradictions. It is
touristy, historic, fallible, fashionable, beautiful and
chaotic.
Paris is as much the sum total of its monuments as
it is made
immeasurable by its endless associations – its
persona
constructed in a rich mix of literature, film, art and
legend.

Curated by Christian Cajoulle, Paris VU: Visions
of the
City
is a visual assemblage of today’s Paris and
can be
seen as a portrait in many parts, an urban collage
built from a
multitude of images. The exhibition brings a unique
perspective to the visual analysis of Paris, with
work by 18
photographers from seven countries: Micheal
Ackerman
(United States), Aniu (China), Philip Blenkinsop
(United
States), Bruno Boudjelal (France/Algeria), Denis
Darzacq
(France), Pierre-Olivier Deschamps (France),
Bertrand
Desprez (France), Claudine Doury (France),
Richard Dumas
(France), J.H. Engström (Sweden), Gilles Favier
(France),
Rip Hopkins (Great Britain), Martin Kollar (Slovakia),
Anders
Petersen (Sweden), Stanley Greene (United
States), Ian Teh
(Great Britain), Lars Tunbjörk (Sweden) and
Guillaume Zuili
(France).

Presented by Hermès and organized in
collaboration
with Agence VU.

Curated by Christian Cajoulle and Guillaume Ziuli
