The Centre Pompidou is devoting a major exhibition to the great Canadian photographer Lynne Cohen. The exhibition takes place in conjunction with one focusing on French photographer Marina Gadonneix. These two counterparts form a singular project that probes the spaces of our modern society. They present fifty years of the photographers’ work, from 1970 to 2020.

The work of Canadian artist Lynne Cohen (1944-2014) enjoys a worldwide reputation. Her photographs of the interiors of public and semi-public spaces, classrooms and shopping arcades, shooting ranges and municipal halls, have been exhibited all over the world.

These images served as models and inspiration for the subsequent generation, particularly that of French photographers, such as Marina Gadonneix (1977), with whom Lynne Cohen corresponded shortly before her death.
