October 23, 2005 - December 5, 2005
The renowned French actress Isabelle Huppert receives a complete homage through over 100 photographic and video portraits by a multi-generational, international group of legendary artists and fashion photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004, France) Nan Goldin (b.1953, New York), Hiroshi Sugimoto (b.1948, Tokyo), Roni Horn (b. 1955, New York) and Helmut Newton (1920-2004, Germany). Her dynamic, challenging, and powerful roles are reflected in this diverse collection of portraits which celebrate her inspiring performances and prolific, thirty year career in which she has worked with eminent directors Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, Bertand Blier, and many others. This exhibition will be shown in conjunction with a screening of Huppert?s films at MoMA; a catalogue accompanying the exhibition includes written portraits by Susan Sontag and Elfriede Jelinek. Woman of Many Faces: Isabelle Huppert will travel internationally to over six major institutions.
