Twice a dream David LaChapelle, art in a hundred pictures
Written by Anna Corazza   

news_of_joy_venice_show.jpgDavid LaChapelle’s first solo exhibition in Venice will open on April 12 at Casa dei Tre Oci. The surrealist spirit of one of the most famous modern photographer will show it all in 100 shots, including the world preview of series New World.

 

The exhibition, curated by Reiner Opoku and Denis Curti, retraces LaChapelle’s career from his first black & white pictures from the 1990s to the most recent production. A meeting with LaChapelle himself will precede the exhibition’s inauguration at Aula Magna Tolentini on April 10.

 

What ingredients make this artist one of the most beloved and debated today? Appreciated by Andy Warhol, so much so that it was he to offer the photographer his first professional contract, the vivid tints and the surrealist style quickly got their foothold in the world of art in the Nineties.

 

Pop, fashion, the sacred and the profane: LaChapelle’s oneiric images show deep reflections on the contradictions of today’s society. While the artist’s production revolves around the human figure, interest for landscape photography is also present (see industrial sceneries on glossy paper.) The successful combo of irony and baroque won’t limit to photography, though. In fact, in the late Nineties LaChapelle becomes interested in video clip and cinema.
