Jeu de Paume (14 titles)
 

Paris
The Jeu de Paume is an important centre for the dissemination of photography and the image. It adopts an open approach that spans all periods, from the 19th to the 21st century, and all contemporary fields of the image (including photography, cinema, video and installation). Its mission is to produce, co-produce and host exhibitions, film seasons, symposia, pedagogical activities and publications.
It showcases both recognised artists (including Sophie Ristelhueber, Martin Parr, Robert Frank, Jean-Luc Moulène, Bruno Serralongue, Richard Avedon, Lee Miller, Lisette Model, André Kertész, Diane Arbus, Berenice Abbott, Erwin Blumenfeld and Garry Winogrand) and up-and-coming talents (notably as part of the Satellite programme), attracting a broad and diverse public.

Instruments is the catalogue accompanying Ismaïl Bahri's exhibition of the same title at the Jeu de Paume. It is also his first monograph. Bahri's oeuvre, which dates back to the 2000s, is like a precise and sensitive record of events and experiments; its often mechanical kinetics are particularly evocative of the film process. His experiments are based on the tiny nuances and minute developments that occur when simple things are brought into contact with each other. They demand an acuteness of gaze that leads one to question the limits of perception and the visible.
