For the second edition of New Looks, some fifty artists are gathered in a four-step journey: portraits of Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles commissioned by the art center at the end of 2018 on the occasion of the release of his book on the sponsorship of the couple, films made in 2019 at the villa Noailles, a room of drawings, paintings and watercolors and finally a room devoted to photography.
13 October, 2019 – 12 January, 2020
Montée de Noailles, 83400 Hyères,
The young artist Florent Groc occupies a special place in the exhibition. He produced a monumental fresco there as well as paintings on wood during his residence in Hyères. Two young artists are also presented following their residencies: Jean Bosphore (pencil drawings) and Matthieu Cossé (watercolors and gouaches). a large watercolor by Jean Percet (1982) is shown there for the first time after its acquisition this year. For photography, a new series by Louise Desnos is next to the cyanotypes of Jey Tall that he produced for the occasion and the prints by Romain Laprade acquired in 2018.
François-Marie Banier offers the public two prints based on his silver images taken in 1968 at the Villa Noailles. There is a fashion series by Alistair Taylor Young published in Le Figaro this year and another by Balthazar Delepierre for the next collection of Ester Manas. Photographs by Karl Lagerfeld (1995) and two prints by Patrick Sarfati (1993) show the attraction of artists for Villa Noailles before it became an art center.
