From 28th of March to 24th of Novembrer 2024 it will be the turn of the retrospective “HELMUT NEWTON. LEGACY”, curated by Matthias Harder, Director of the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, and Denis Curti, on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the artist’s birth (Berlin, 1920 – Los Angeles, 2004).
Through 250 photographs, magazines, documents and videos, the exhibition will look back over the entire career of one of the best loved and widely discussed photographers of all time. Alongside the more iconic images, a corpus of previously unpublished photographs, presented for the first time in Italy, will reveal many less known aspects of Newton’s work, with a specific focus on the more unconventional fashion shoots. Polaroids and contact sheets will also provide information on the creative process surrounding some of the iconic motifs present, while special publications, archive materials and statements by the photographer will contribute to enabling visitors to gain an understanding of the context in which the inspiration for this extraordinary artist came about.
With a view to expanding and consolidating relations with institutions and cultural bodies also outside of the city of Venice, the exhibition will be on display exclusively in Italy from spring 2023 until summer 2024 with a tour of other prestigious sites: in Milan, at Palazzo Reale, from 24 March to 25 June 2023; in Rome, at the Museo dell’Ara Pacis, where it will arrive in the autumn of 2023; finally, in Venice in the spring of 2024.
