Drawing on its rich collection of photographs, the Centre Pompidou is devoting a presentation to the celebrated Graffiti series by the Hungarian-born French photographer Brassaï.
The Graffiti series, on which the photographer worked for over twenty-five years, contains over 500 pictures, some still little-known. By unveiling many hitherto unpublished images, the exhibition staged in the Galerie de Photographies takes a more in-depth look at this celebrated group of works and its influence on artists and writers close to Brassaï, who included Pablo Picasso, Jacques Prévert and Jean Dubuffet.
In a completely new way, the exhibition places this cult Graffiti series in its context and sheds light on how it was perceived and understood in its time.
