Dear Friends,

It is time for another update on the many developments for FEP.  It has been an exciting period of growth of our exhibition program generally, spurred on by our new office in NY and our expanding range of contacts in the US.  We are either working with or engaged in advanced discussions with the following North American museums:

  • Seattle Art Musem
  • Speed Art Museum, Louisville
  • High Museum of Art, Atlanta
  • Boca Raton Museum of Art, Florida
  • International Center of Photography, New York (ICP)
  • Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Canada
  • Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Fort Worth
  • Indiana University Art Museum, Bloomington
  • Sarasota Museum of Art
  • Denver Art Museum
  • Grey Art Gallery, New York
  • Palm Springs Art Museum
  • Chrysler Art Museum, Norfolk
  • Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Monterrey, Mexico
  • de Young Museum, San Francisco

This new wave of activity in the US, Mexico and Canada helps to balance out our worldwide network.

Our exhibition program is currently expanding with historic monographic exhibitions devoted to Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Edward S. Curtis, and contemporary artists such as Vik Muniz and William Wegman. Moreover, we have ambitious thematic shows being developed, including Polaroid: Art and Technology co-organized with MIT; and, the Downtown New York art scene in collaboration with the Grey Art Gallery and the Fales Archive. The latest thematic shows to join the roster are CIVILIZATION, The Way We Live Now, a wide-ranging look at the complexity of social life in the 21st century, co-produced with a major Asian institution; and a comprehensive show on the visual wonders of New York City, in collaboration with ICP.  Needless to say, we are extremely pleased to be working with such great artists, subjects and institutions.

As with all of our exhibitions, we have books planned as companion catalogues for the exhibitions, co-published together with the major illustrated book publishers, Delmonico Books/Prestel in New York, and Thames & Hudson In London. Our publications are regularly cited as significant contributions to the field.

The next five months are busy with openings of our exhibitions and we would love to see any of you who will be in these areas.  First will be our Curtis exhibition opening in Palm Springs on February 19. Then our Vik Muniz show opens at the High Museum, Atlanta, on February 24. In March, we will be inaugurating our first Asian presentation of Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photographs at Condé Nast in Tokyo at the Chanel Nexus Hall on March 17th. April has us in Boca Raton for an opening of “Arnold Newman: Masterclass” and in Kyoto for the next of our shows of Coming Into Fashion as part of the annual Kyotographie photography festival.  Finally, we end the season with Curtis again at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary.

Hope to see some of you at some point along the FEP way!
