Exhibition opening: Le Bal



“OUR DREAM IS TO TRANSFORM AN OLD PARISIAN DANCE HALL, JUST MINUTES FROM PLACE DE CLICHY, INTO A VENUE FOR THE DOCUMENTARY IMAGE (PHOTOGRAPHY, VIDEO AND FILM).
A PLACE TO PRESENT, COMPARE AND EXAMINE THE MANY POSSIBLE WAYS OF ADDRESSING REALITY.
A PLACE TO QUESTION THE ISSUES INVOLVED IN DOCUMENTARY CREATION; ISSUES THAT SPAN AESTHETICS AND POLITICS.
A PLACE TO DEBATE THE CONDITIONS IN WHICH DOCUMENTARY IMAGES ARE PRODUCED, PUBLISHED AND SEEN.
A PLACE TO THINK ABOUT WHAT A “DOCUMENT” REALLY IS:  PART INVESTIGATION, PART EXPERIENCE, PART RECORDING AND PART CREATION.
A PLACE TO EXPLORE NEW VISUAL FORMS THAT CAN CONVEY REALITY IN ALL ITS COMPLEXITY.”

RAYMOND DEPARDON AND DIANE DUFOUR













Paris`s new hip exhibition space just opened last night,
called Le Bal.
