Preview of the film On Closer Inspection: Robert Cumming & meeting with Emilia Mickevicius
Maison Européenne de la Photographie
To coincide with Paris Photo, the MEP is offering a special programme including the preview of the film On Closer Inspection: Robert Cumming directed by Noah Rosenberg, in collaboration with The Robert Cumming Archives. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Emilia Mickevicius and Simon Baker.
Robert Cumming was one of the most important American photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, known for his conceptual, meticulous and often humorous photographs. In the last two years of his life, Robert Cumming set out to fulfill a long-held ambition: to reinterpret some of his negatives into larger-scale prints.
On Closer Inspection: Robert Cumming is a documentary bringing together a series of testimonies about the artist, gathered from his long-standing friends, collaborators and curators of his exhibitions in major institutions. The film is being presented to the public for the first time at the MEP. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Emilia Mickevicius, art historian and curator, and Simon Baker, director of the MEP.
Both the screening and the discussion are in English.
From 4pm there will be a signing session in the bookshop.
