Fashion and Style in Photography
March 6, 2013 23:02


Numerous photographic exhibitions open in Moscow each year on the eve of spring. In even-numbered years this process occurs within the frame of Biennale, in the odd-numbered years it happens under the brand of the Festival "Fashion and Style in Photography". This year is 2013, and therefore, now it`s the turn of "Fashion and Style". The program of this event includes 45 exhibitions on various platforms; almost half of them are foreign.

There are no special topics at this year's festival, but there is a "thematic focus", the epigraph common to all projects says: "Beauty: Myths and Sources of Inspiration". The practical leitmotif should be the aesthetics of modernism the elements of which are inherent to many of the announced exhibitions. So, the first festival expositions open at the Multimedia Art Museum show clear signs of modernism, though they come from different countries and belong to different historical epochs. The main of these projects designed to set the tone for the whole program of the Biennale contains a direct reference to the dominant aesthetic in its title.

The exhibition "It's Paris! Modernism in Photography. 1920-1950. From the collection of Christian Bukre” is an extract from a large private collection acquired by the Pompidou Centre in 2011. The large overview project is joined by personal exhibitions which also show the traits of modernism, although their identification may sometimes require erudition and wit. For example, the exhibition titled "Dialogues about Nature" features the pictures resembling the botanical illustrations for the reference book, rather than the works of high art. Finally, the exhibition "Favorites" of our contemporary and compatriot Mikhail Rozanov is one more version of modernism, if we can say this, “post-mortem” one. Rozanov deliberately returns to the stylistic trends of the avant-garde past when modeling the images of the present.
