World Pre­miere at Yuz Mu­seum of “CHAR­LIE CHAP­LIN. A VI­SION”

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Char­lie Chap­lin is the founder of mod­ern com­edy, and one of the most in­flu­en­tial per­form­ing artists and film di­rec­tors of the 20th cen­tury. His com­i­cal im­age with bowler hat, bam­boo cane and small mus­tache is well-known and deeply rooted world­wide.He him­self was a famous paci­fist and so­cial ac­tivist. In 2015, at the in­vi­ta­tion of Tatyana Franck, di­rec­tor of the Musée de l’Elysée, Budi Tek, founder of Yuz Mu­seum, at­tended a sem­i­nar in Lau­sanne, Switzer­land. When vis­it­ing the col­lec­tion’s space at the Musée de l’Elysée, Tek found the cu­ra­tors study­ing pre­cious orig­i­nal pho­to­graphs of Chap­lin and do­ing restora­tion work. The col­lec­tion tes­ti­fies as much to the evo­lu­tion of Chap­lin’s famous tramp, a mis­chievous dandy but a great charmer, at the be­gin­ning of his ca­reer, as to the artist at work. Char­lie Chap­lin is beloved to Chi­nese au­di­ences. Re­call­ing this com­edy mas­ter through his pho­to­graphic archive and re­lated con­tem­po­rary art­works, Tek be­lieves it will en­able the au­di­ence to have a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing about why the char­ac­ters Chap­lin cre­ated tran­scend time and be­come clas­sics. The Yuz Mu­seum team im­me­di­ately de­cided to col­lab­o­rate with the Musée de l’Elysée and started prepa­ra­tions for the ex­hi­bi­tion. This ad was based on the in­tro­duc­tion posted on the web­site of the mu­seum.
