… PHOTOGRAPHERS … ARTISTS AND THE SNAP CARDIGAN
Group exhibition
galerie du jour agnès b., New York
February 08 - March 01, 2020

“This exhibition echoes the first snap cardigan exhibition held at la galerie du jour as part of Paris Photography Month 1986, two years after the gallery’s opening. As the stylist, philanthropist and collector agnès b. noted on that occasion,

»A while ago, I designed a cardigan for myself. I wanted a sweatshirt that opened in front with lots of snaps that evoke a Renaissance garment, a child’s garment for grown-ups, or the other way round. Since then, it has sold and been seen on other people.

I had the idea for the exhibition when I saw people making the garment their own, adapting it to their personal style. It occurred to me that photographers are never given the same subject, and that they would each have their own vision of the garment. Their response was enthusiastic, and the result is beautiful. I am extremely grateful«
