CURRENT EXHIBITION VOYAGES D’EXPLORATEURS - musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac

The exhibition “Frank Horvat: Wandering through” Paris presents a selection of photographs taken between 1950 and 1980, illustrating Paris’ street life, its inhabitants, its night life, its celebrities and its dynamic world of fashion.

Born in 1928 in Italy, Frank Horvat becomes a photojournalist right after the war, before specializing in fashion photography, for which he became notorious. A pioneer, he takes fashion “down into the streets” by applying photojournalism techniques to fashion.

His photographs appear in the collections of the finest museums, such as the Centre Pompidou, the Maison de la Photographie (MEP, the Palais Galliera, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Getty Museum and the VOYAGES D’EXPLORATEURS - musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac Victoria and Albert Museum, for example. In the present exhibition, whose title is borrowed from Claude Autant-Lara's famous film featuring Jean Gabin and Bourvil, some of the many facets of Frank Horvat's work are highlighted through a portrait of Paris.

Located at the heart of boarding gates of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, Espace Musées has yet to meet its match in the world. It is the only museum to host a new exhibition for passengers every six months, hosting prestigious institutions twice a year. It is emblematic of GROUPE ADP's commitment to include art in every passenger's journey.
