Exhibition “Epreuves de la matière” on contemporary photography and its metamorphoses

Through a wide range of plastic explorations, the question of matter runs through all areas of photography, from the creative process to the presentation of images. Drawing on the BnF’s rich collection of contemporary photographs, the exhibition reveals photographic material’s capacity for metamorphosis, but also its potential for disappearance. Through the singular works of nearly two hundred French and foreign photographers, a sensitive and embodied history of photography is revealed.

From 10 October 2023 to 4 February 2024
