Exhibitions have already featured major works collected by agnès b. for over 30 years, but this is the first time a multi-faceted mirror portrait of her has ever been organized on such a large scale. A stylist, movie producer, friend of musicians and director of a film selected at the Venice Mostra, agnès b. has been discovering artists since the 1980s. She opened her gallery in 1983 and collects photographs dating from the 1930s to the present. The show focuses on major artists, from Kenneth Anger to Jonas Mekas, whose work she was often the first to collect, as well as on temporal or aesthetic themes. Like so many cast-offs and folk tales, these photographs draw a portrait of a woman free of all conventions. With Yvon Lambert, agnès b. communicates her lust for life by collecting works in order to share them.
