Reversing the Eye, the exhibition

Taking place in two Parisian venues, the Jeu de Paume and LE BAL, and co-produced with Triennale Milano, Reversing the Eye explores the relationship that a part of the Italian avant-garde had with the mechanical image in the 1960’s and early 1970’s: photography, film and video.


This publication and exhibition it accompanies take a fresh look at the arte povera movement rarely associated with photographic and filmic media. They invite the viewer to "reverse the eye" through this unprecedented view of the artistic movement by also placing it in the social and political context of the time in Italy.


The title “Reversing the Eye » is a reference to the eponymous work by Giuseppe Penone, Rovesciare i propri occhi, which appears in the book and exhibition.
