July 3rd to September 23rd, 2017
at the 18 rue de la Calade — Arles
THE ARLES DOC’HOUSE is the third summer exhibition organized by our Foundation in the 17th-century-mansion Hotel Blain. We are commited to presenting the public with leading-edge documentary projects that are impacting, thoughtful and inspiring from our curatorial point of view - everconscious of puting forth powerful and eloquent stories that addresshumanity, social justice, and other issues of our times.
This year’s summer program examines documentary from serveral perspective: the life of a singer (Edith Piaf with Universal Music France), the gaze of our laureates (Enri Canaj and Ismail Ferdous, 2016 MRO Prize winners), the journey of Mafia (Tony Gentile presented by PhotoLux) or our newest partners Tënk and Fotofever’s selection.
The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation, with the support of the City of Arle,s stands today as a cornerstone of humanist photography and film in Southern France ; defending documentary works in a unique and socially responsible perspective.
Curators Nicolas HAVETTE, Peter PFRUNDER, Dimitri BECK, Sunghee LEE.
