Valérie Belin: Made Up

On view October 17, 2009 to April 4, 2010

Located in the: Photography, Hilborn Gallery

Internationally-acclaimed photographer Valérie Belin comes to PEM for her first solo show in the United States.  Featuring 17 exquisite, monumental images, Valérie Belin: Made Up explores a photographer’s ability to manipulate perception of artificiality and reality.  In her images of mannequins, models and still lifes, Belin’s work treats the iconic and the banal equally and displays both on a disarmingly large scale.  Belin’s mid-career retrospective was received with enormous popular and critical praise across Europe – she is rapidly becoming a leader in the world of photography. Valérie Belin: Made Up was organized by Phillip Prodger, PEM’s Curator of Photography.
