The Cen­tre Pom­pi­dou–Metz con­sid­ers the phe­nom­e­non and aes­thetic of pa­parazzi pho­tog­ra­phy in a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary ex­hi­bi­tion of more than 600 works. Photographs, paint­ings, videos, sculp­tures and in­stal­la­tions sug­gest par­al­lels be­tween images taken by lead­ing pa­parazzi ( Ron Galella, Pas­cal Rostain and Bruno Mouron, Tazio Sec­chiaroli ) and the work of Richard Ave­don, R aymond Depardon, Wil­liam K lein, Ger­hard R ichter, Cindy Sher­man or Andy Warhol. The ap­pro­pri­a­tion by art and fash­ion of the visual hall­marks of the pa­parazzi pic­ture raises in­ter­est­ing ques­tions at a time when celebri­ties, after kick­ing into touch em­bar­rass­ing pic­tures of them­selves, are flood­ing the in­ter­net with their own un­flat­ter­ing self­ies.

PA­PARAzzi , PHo­toG­RA­PHERs, stARs And A Rtists, un­til 9th June.
