Richard Pare, master photographer and founding photographic curator of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, will speak to the impact of Le Corbusier’s work on contemporary design.
The presentation will include images from Pare’s Le Corbusier portfolio appearing in the Museum of Modern Art - New York exhibition, Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes. The portfolio was made possible by a grant from the AVC foundation, Moscow, and was first presented in, Le Corbusier: Creation and Secrets, from Painting to Architecture at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. It will also be featured at Fondacion La Caixa in Barcelona and Madrid.
The Lost Vanguard was a major exhibition at MoMA in 2007 of Pare’s photographs of Soviet Modernist architecture. It was also shown in Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona and Moscow, as well as at the Royal Academy of Arts in London (2012). He is responsible for four major books including Photography and Architecture 1839-1939.
Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret), born in 1887, was one most influential personalities in 20th Century culture. Best known for his profound effect on architecture, his career also had considerable influence on interior design and urban planning. His work continues to resonate in contemporary architecture and design, including the High Museum of Art.
Lumière is pleased to offer this program as a collaborative event with Atlanta Celebrates Photography.
