The other "New Wave"
The third part of the trilogy by photographer Pierre René-Worms at agnès b. dedicated to the post-punk movement.
After "Joy Division" at the rue du Jour shops in September, 2007, the exhibition "Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes" at the Galerie du Jour in May, 2008, here is "New Wave." A compilation of works from 1977 and 1983 of young promising artists who will become, for some (U2, Depeche Mode...), current superstars.
1977: The punk lived. We are already in another stream which still has no name. Th Police, Talking Heads, Blondie, Elvis Costello … Fast, a name, no time to think too long. New Wave? Go for New Wave.
1979: Joy Division, from Manchester, The Cure, from Crawley, U2, Dublin … Young people more rock 'n' roll, in search of a certain modern glance, with sounds which belong only to them.
1980: Pierre René-Worms is a 20-year-old photographer. His images are published in Actuel, in Rock and Folk. He seizes the groups who are playing in Paris or is going to look for them, even in their kitchen!
A whole period of beginnings, illuminated by the eye of the photographer and entered since the legend.
Immediate of yesterday, classics today.
Opening November 26th from 6.00pm
agnès b. 31-33 cours d'Estienne d'Orves, Marseilles
