On Wednesday October 18th, 2017
Beppe Finessi, Gabriele Neri and Umberto Riva
will present the new monograph,
UMBERTO RIVA – interni e allestimenti by Gabriele Neri,
published by Lettera Ventidue Edizioni,
about the work of the Italian architect and designer Umberto Riva,
at the Galleria Carla Sozzani from 7 pm.
It took more than ten years the quest of Shelly Verthime
to bring the untouched pictures by Guy Bourdin to a book and to an exhibition,
shown for the first time at the Fondazione Sozzani.
Thanks to the intuitions, the coincidences,
and the love for Bourdin’s work of Shelly Verthime, the Curator of the Estate Guy Bourdin,
and Alistair O’Neill, curator and lecturer at the Saint Martins’ College,
who, with his fluent and accomplished talking led the audience throughout the years
and the career of Guy Bourdin.
The five-year anniversary issue
by Document Journal
featuring seven limited edition covers
by several of the magazine’s contributing photographers and stylists:
Grace Coddington, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Joe McKenna, Zoe Ghertner,
Willy Vanderperre, Olivier Rizzo, Mario Sorrenti, Theo Sion, Richard Bush,
Harley Weir, Alice Goddard, and Document’s fashion director Sarah Richardson.
The issue also includes an exclusive and limited edition book by Nan Goldin,
the artist’s first publication in several years.
Available at Galleria Carla Sozzani Bookshop.
From the long work of the curator Shelly Verthime,
comes now the “Untouched” exhibition by Guy Bourdin.
“A yellow Kodak Box. A treasure found in the archive, filled with a series of brown paper envelopes
each containing a negative and a corresponding contact print taped to the outside, often with cropping guides.
Untouched for over fifty years, these were rare, intimate, personal, and authentic reflections
of Guy Bourdin’s broad visual interests before he started his commercial career as a photographer.”
