ART SEEN - The Beauty of Lines at the Musée de l'Elysée

ART SEEN // Art & Culture // March 13, 2018

Catherine Lewis took her photography students to The Beauty of Lines exhibition in Lausanne and found herself staring at works she'd dreamed of seeing for years.

The exhibition presents a selection of masterpieces from the history of photography, part of the collection of Sondra Gilman and Celso Gonzalez-Falla. The photographs by Bérénice Abbott, Eugène Atget, Robert Adams, Walker Evans, Vik Muniz, Man Ray and Lee Friedlander, among others, thus resonate, beyond their historical temporality and geographic considerations, by their formal correspondences. Through visual confrontations, the visitor is invited to experience the power of the photographic line through these sublime works.
