Martine Franck

03.07 - 27.10.2024

This summer, the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation joins forces with the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation to honour the extraordinary artist couple Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) and Martine Franck (1938-2012), with an extensive tribute that will go on display in both its museums, in Athens and in Andros, from July 3 to October 27, 2024

A retrospective exhibition of works by Martine Franck, featuring about 150 of her photographs, will go on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Andros. The tribute will present in detail all the subjects that Franck focused on in the course of her career, such as the different stages of life (childhood, initiation, maturity), the workplace, political and social issues (protests, portraits, criticism of overconsumption) as well as feminist struggles.

Henri Cartier-Bresson and his wife Martine Franck were dear friends of Basil and Elise Goulandris. Cartier-Bresson inaugurated the new wing of the Goulandris Foundation’s Museum of Contemporary Art in Andros in 1987, exhibiting 150 photographs that he had selected. Franck is credited with one of the most striking portraits of Elise Goulandris, taken in Gstaad in 1999, one year before Elise’s passing. With their photographic lens and their special technique, both Cartier-Bresson and Franck have each left their own indelible mark on art.

The exhibitions are under the auspices of the French Ministry of Culture.
