MEETING POINT THE EYES X MEP
MEETING POINT #1 AT LA MEP :
THE NEW WAVE OF CHINESE PHOTOGRAPHY
Meeting Point is a series of meetings organised to share ideas on the diversity of the photographic experience. We have conceived Meeting Point as a moment to share and discuss modern challenges in the discipline, around interseasonal exhibitions at MEP, four thursdays a year.
For this first meeting, the MEP X The Eyes offers a reflexion on Chinese photography and how it falls within the modern era.
The modern Chinese photography thrives in the digital era. In a country that has known a spectacular liberalisation, a new generation seized photography as a liberating medium. Many movements, in China or abroad, are on the path to find new areas of freedom. What does this generation born after 1985 has to tell us on the limits of public opinion, with which she subtly plays ? How do these young photographers find their place in a country where emancipation and traditional values come face to face ? To which unexplored territories do this new artistic stage open ?
Meeting moderated by Véronique Prugnaud and Vincent Marcilhacy (The Eyes).
