Jaume Plensa
Jaume Plensa is a contemporary Spanish artist best known for his depictions of the human face through sculpture and innovative technology. His commission Crown Fountain (2004), a public installation in Chicago’s Millennium Park, proved to be a turning point in his career. In the work, large reflective towers utilize LEDs to project close-up images of faces. “Sculpture is not only talking about volumes. It is talking about something deep inside ourselves that without sculpture we cannot describe,” he explained. “We are always with one foot in normal life and one foot in the most amazing abstraction. And that is the contradiction that is life.” Born on August 23, 1955 in Barcelona, Spain where he currently lives and works, Plensa studied at the Llotja School of Art and Design and at the Sant Jordi School of Fine Art in Spain in the 1970s. Plensa has transitioned from an abstraction to figuration of the course of his career. The artist’s works are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Palazzo Forti in Verona, the Reina Sofia National Museum in Madrid, and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, among others.

Jean-Baptiste Huynh: Beauty
There is a brilliant directness and intimacy in the portraits of Jean-Baptiste Huynh. They masterfully celebrate the power that a persona has to captivate the viewer. The portraits become beautiful manifestations of the soul and the spirit of the sitters forming atmospheres of concentration. The images are created in the tradition of classic portraiture with Huynh being a disciple of Irving Penn and composing his subjects in a similar manner. Huynh builds a portable studio that is very basic and minimal. The sitter is made emphatic; they are skillfully lit with a combination of artificial and natural light, and photographed with a medium format camera. Huynh makes all of the oversized silver gelatin prints in a traditional darkroom himself. Of the various bodies of work that Huynh is known for, he has made portraits in Ethiopia, Mali, Japan, and India. The sitters range in age and ethnicity and act as bridges between cultural diversity and individual identities. They reveal a purity of beauty in the elegance of diverse features and the emotion of gazes.

Surpassing Art
The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, with the support of the French Instituteat the French Embassy, presents an exhibition titled «Surpassing Art», dedicated to the May 1968 events in Paris. It encompasses a broader period from the 1950s to the 1960s and brings to the fore the connection between politics and art. Along with posters, magazines and publications from 1968, such as the legendary ROBO and «Opus International», the exhibition features interactive installations by Julio Le Parcand Yvaral, as well as pieces by artists whose work has never been shown in Russia such as Gérard Fromanger, Isidore Isou, Gil Wolman, and Daniel Buren. The title of the exhibition «Surpassing Art» refers to one of Guy Debord’s five slogans shown as five paintings, where text takes the place of image, at an exhibition held in 1963 in Denmark. Five years later, graffiti with these slogans appeared on the streets of Paris.

The Magic of Metzner
The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography presents a retrospective by Sheila Metzner—an outstanding American photographer whose works are being presented in Russia for the first time. During her 50-year career, Sheila has built up an impressive portfolio: from celebrity portraits, including Uma Thurman, David Lynch, Milla Jovovich, Tilda Swinton and Kim Basinger, and photographs for fashion magazines such as Vogue, Tatler and Vanity Fair, to still life and landscapes. Despite such a variety of genres, Metzner’s works all have an easily recognizable trademark style. Sheila finds inspiration in life itself: in people and subjects around her, her family, fleeting impressions and feelings. Sheila creates deeply personal, sensual, graceful and fascinating images. In the poses of the models, saturated deep colors and soft focus, there is a hint of an influence from 19th-early 20th century photography, pictorialism, the works of Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, and the paintings of Caravaggio and Rembrandt.

Witold Krassowski: All Eyes
Well-known Polish photographer, Witold Krassowski worked for various prestigious publications such as ‘Liberation’, ‘Globe’, ‘Stern’, ‘Der Spiegel’, ‘Focus’, ‘The Observer’, ‘The New Yorker’ and ‘Forbes.’ He won two awards at the ‘World Press Photo’ contest (1992 and 2003). ‘From each trip I selected at least one shot to realise my own plan: to recreate human life by a logic common to all, touching on themes such as coming of age, survival, life in a group and social transformation. If you abstract yourself from ideology and historical context, it becomes clear that despite variations and individual peculiarities we are all the same,’ writes Krassowski in his foreword to the MAMM exhibition.
