Three of my photographs of Brighton Swimming Club have been used to promote Nouvelles Vagues (New Waves) at Palais De Tokyo. The images are not used in the exhibition itself, the usage was arranged months ago and by coincidence Samsung brought me out to Paris just at the right time to see the images in situ.
The images are used on three billboard posters outside the exhibition, printed materials for the show and online. It’s quite nice seeing a little slice of Brighton life being used to promote contemporary art in Paris.
The exhibition itself is a huge group show that is organised by over twenty international curators. I reckon the exhibition space is twice the size of the Haywood in London, it’s a real varied mixture of work from video to installation and sculpture. If you’re in Paris before the 9th September I highly recommend you visit, you will probably need an hour and half to see everything in the exhibition. I had to do it in 30 minutes because of lack of time and needing to get my flight home.
