With work by Pablo Baquedano, Marie-Noëlle Boutin, Gilles Coulon, Chimène Denneulin, Claudine Doury, Gabrielle Duplantier, Guillaume Herbaut, Yohanne Lamoulère, Stéphane Lavoué, Géraldine Millo, Myr Muratet, the collective made up of Alexandra Pouzet and Bruno Almosnino, Lola Reboud, Klavdij Sluban, and Patrice Terraz.
The work of 15 photographers who provide a new and original vision of youth in France today by creating a dialogue between adolescents and their educational and social environments, with a special emphasis on their relation to others and the notion of love.
This exhibition stems from a public call for projects launched in 2016 in both France and its overseas departments and territories that was initiated by the Ministry of Culture and organised by the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP) in collaboration with the CéTàVOIR association.
“In the future, when the youth in these photographs have become adults, then senior citizens, these images will remain just as we see them now. Yet they will have become a documents that the curious observer or the historian or the sociologist can use to detect clues, signs that will reveal the trends or body fashions, the hair styles or logos. They will also form, and this is difficult to appreciate today, a testimony of how the youth in 2017 were perceived.”
