Art Fair

Paris Photo 2017

November 9–12, 2017, booth B16
Grand Palais, Paris

Patti Smith, an internationally acclaimed musician, writer, and visual artist, has chosen a selection of her own photographs to be shown alongside works by other artists including Richard Avedon, Balthus, Gregory Crewdson, Peter Lindbergh, Vera Lutter, Sally Mann, Taryn Simon, Deborah Turbeville, Cy Twombly, and Andy Warhol. Smith began taking photographs in 1978, eventually developing an emotionally unfiltered archive of solitary moments, to which she is continually adding. Her lifelong fascination with eulogy and remembrance is reflected in her selection of works by other artists. “Curated by Patti Smith” provides a glimpse of Smith and her fellow travelers, and is a coming-together of people, places, and relics.
