40 ans de Light Cone / June 9, 2022

SCRAPBOOK EXHIBITION

In parallel to Light Cone's 40th anniversary celebrations, which will take place from June 13 to 19, 2022, in Paris, and the publication of the Scrapbook, we wanted to pay tribute to the generosity of the artists that we have represented for forty years by exhibiting their works in a Parisian gallery for three weeks. The Scrapbook exhibition will be open from June 9 to 29, 2022, at Rue Antoine gallery in the 18th arrondissement in Paris.

2022 marks an important moment for Light Cone: its 40th anniversary. Such an event should be celebrated in the best possible way. Light Cone has come together thanks to the filmmakers whose films entered the collection over the years. We’ve decided to invite them to participate in an editorial project, a book in which we would publish their contributions: letters, postcards, photographs, drawings, film stills, collages, etc., which they have sent us for the occasion of the anniversary. A collective scrapbook in which the materiality of the objects – paper, photos, colors, handwritten notes – evokes that of analog cinema, which we have always defended. A book of images is born, and through the creation of this micro-collection, so is a portable museum of about one hundred pieces, which are ready to be exhibited and which will remain in the care of Light Cone’s archive.

Exhibition curatorship: Fabrice Guyot, Emmanuel Lefrant et Sophie Renaut.

Gallery hours:
Wednesday to Saturday, 2pm - 7pm

Exhibition opening on Thursday, June 9, at 7pm

The book will be available for purchase at Rue Antoine gallery during the exhibition. It will also be for sale at our online shop from June 7th, 2022.

This event is part of Light Cone’s 40th anniversary celebrations. If you’d like to attend all of the events, you can purchase a pass at this link.
