‘‘Actrices’’, Kate Barry exhibit in Taiwan

The ‘‘Actrices’’ ("Actresses") exhibit of photographer Kate Barry made a stopover in Taiwan on April 21-28, 2015, offering a film program put together for the occasion.
Following its inaugural presentation in Italy, as part of the Rome Film Festival in the fall of 2014, the ‘‘Actrices’’ exhibit produced by the Institut français is comprised of 26 portraits by the late photographer Kate Barry, including those of Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Emmanuelle Béart, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Adèle Exarchopoulos, to be presented in Taiwan, Kaohsiung and Taipei.
A film program accompanied the exhibit, to enable the Taiwanese public to discover eleven works, portrayals in light and shadows of France’s greatest actresses. These films were presented in the best possible conditions, i.e. on 35mm and DCP media with subtitles in traditional Chinese characters.
The exhibit’s curator, journalist Aline Arlettaz, was present at the end of April to take part in a press conference held in Taipei, followed by an encounter with the public to evoke the memory of the photographic work of Kate Barry.
This exhibit was organized locally by the French Bureau in Taipei and its partners, Kaohsiung Film Archive, Spot Taipei Cinema and Spot Huashan Cinema, with the support of the Institut français.
