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