Crossed perspectives on China : exhibition of Marc Riboud and Martin Parr at Forte di Bard, Italy

July, 5 - November, 11, 2024

Exhibition : “China. From Cultural Revolution to super power” Martin Parr – Marc Riboud

Production : Magnum Photos and Forte di Bard

Adress : Forte di Bard, 11020 Bard, Aosta Valley, Italy


How to tell the story of a country like China: so vast, populous, diverse in its landscapes and in the peoples who make it up, so eternal and so changing? For this exhibition, we made a bet: we asked Martin Parr to select images from Marc Riboud’s archives and to add a selection from his personal archives. Without being exhaustive, these two proposals give a clear idea of the development of China from the 1950s to the present day, from an idealistic, inward-looking country to a superpower competing with the United States.

An unseen look between Afghan and French contemporary artists, between new works and traces of the past, to weave the Afghan history and preserve its breath.

A sensible dialogue between the life of bodies, dressed with textile, and the art of weaving in the history of Afghanistan.
