Gregory Crewdson. Eveningside


Arles, France


From July 3rd to September 24th 2023


From Turin to Arles

The Rencontres d'Arles Festival is one of the most important international photography events. It is held every summer in the French town of Arles in Provence and attracts enthusiasts and photographers from all over the world.
The festival, founded in 1970 by photographer Lucien Clergue, writer Michel Tournier and historian Jean‑Maurice Rouquette, takes place in several historical venues in the town, including old Roman theatres, churches, historical buildings and industrial spaces. Every year it presents exhibitions by renowned photographers and emerging talents, with a focus on photographic experimentation and innovation. The programme also includes lectures, workshops and live performances.

The exhibition “Gregory Crewdson. Eveningside”, the result of a co-production between Gallerie d'Italia / Intesa Sanpaolo and Festival Rencontres d' Arles, is travelling to France this summer, for one of the most important international events dedicated to photography.

The works on display in Arles will include the trilogy made up of Cathedral of the Pines (2013-2014), An Eclipse of Moths (2018-2019) and Eveningside (2021-2022), a project commissioned from Crewdson by Gallerie d’Italia / Intesa Sanpaolo. The latter nucleus in particular, from which the exhibition takes its name, was exhibited as a world premiere from 11/10/2022 to 22/01/2023 at the Bank's museum in Turin.

The trilogy tells the story of the last ten years of the American photographer's work, interacting, as it did in Turin, with the Fireflies series (1996), the result of the artist's solo work which offers a counterpoint within Crewdson's work.

Exhibition curated by Jean-Charles Vergne.
