Paris Berlin | Exhibition Grand Palais 2012
Opening: Thursday 31 October 2013 at 8 pm
Exhibition: 1 November 2013 - 18 May 2014
Housed in a former Prussian Officer’s Casino in Berlin-Charlottenburg, the Helmut Newton Foundation (HNF) is currently exhibiting: Helmut Newman: Paris Berlin. Exhibition Grand Palais 2012 in conjunction with Greg Norman: Men.
Newton personally established this foundation a decade ago, in the fall of 2004 and since its inauguration, the HNF has organized and presented exhibitions on a regular basis. In 2012, the Grand Palais held the first comprehensive retrospective of Newton’s work in Paris; a city in which he received much critical acclaim. That show now returns to its original source in Berlin, celebrating Newton’s visionary portfolio that brought him both fortune and notoriety, in the form of over 200 provocative, erotically charged black and white fashion photographs.
At the HNF, Newton’s images are always presented in parallel with works by a contemporary artist. American portrait photographer Greg Gorman accompanies Newton for this exhibition, presenting his series of male nude photographs that were produced between 1988 and 2012.
