Agnès Varda Exhibition to Debut in New York on March 2nd

Master filmmaker Agnès Varda will have her first art exhibition in New York City on Thursday, March 2nd, at Blum & Poe. The exhibition is comprised of video installations, photography and sculptures, encompassing works made from 1949 through the present day. Blum & Poe will also be partnering with the French Institute Alliance Française and Rendez-Vouz with French Cinema of the Film Society, Lincoln Center, to present a series of Varda's cinematic works and lectures. On Tuesday, February 28th, at 7:30pm, Varda will discuss her practice as a visual artist and the work on view at Blum & Poe in a talk moderated by exhibition organizer Olivier Renaud-Clément at the French Institute Alliance Française. She will also participate in a Q&A moderated by Laurence Kardish, former Film Curator at MoMA, following a 7:30pm screening of her 1976 documentary, "Daguerréotypes," on Tuesday, March 7th.

Among the artworks on display will be eighteen black-and-white photographs from her first exhibition at her Paris home (where she still lives) in 1954, a three-channel video installation, a new series of four sculptures entitled "Shacks of Cinema," and a trinity of self-portraits. "What has struck me in meeting and working with Agnes is her vivacity and voracity for life and time — a notion fully explored in her films and a curiosity ever re-awoken," said Renaud-Clément.

Varda's recent awards include the Palme d'Or d'Honneur at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and the Pardo d'onore Swisscom at the 2014 Locarno Film Festival. She also received the Golden Thumb award at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival's annual Ebert Tribute event
