The format of the book devoted to reGeneration3 takes the ever-growing popularity of the photography book into account. With its 184 pages, the book testifies to the museum’s interest in artists’ books and to its commitment to giving priority to the image. The integration of augmented reality in the two versions of the book allows access to the video and multimedia works presented in the exhibition.
reGeneration — an innovative international project devoted to the emerging photographic scene launched in 2005 — represents one of the hallmarks of the Musée de l’Elysée. Although many similar projects have seen the day since then, the Musée de l’Elysée decided to embark on a third edition on the occasion of its 30th anniversary, one that would focus on the multifaceted nature of photography.
Almost one hundred art academies worldwide responded to our call for applications and submitted up to five portfolios of the best work of their recently graduated students. After a careful review of the four hundred applications submitted, three major themes were identified as being representative of the emerging art scene: the variety of approaches for dealing with documentary subjects; the question of memory; and the wealth of aesthetic photographic expressions inspired by the history of the medium and, more broadly, the history of art.
reGeneration3 brings together fifty artists with twentyfive different nationalities, representing some forty art institutions. Their work is distinguished by their multidisciplinarity, ranging from printing and photographic series, artists’ books, multimedia installations, videos, projections, films and performances, to on-site installations.
Exhibition on view from From May 29 to August 23, 2015 at the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne.
