On presentation of your Foam membership pass or your employee card, you get access to the museum.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Brassaï (1899- 1984), a French photographer of Hungarian descent, is considered a key figure of 20th-century photography. He created countless iconic images of 1930s Parisian life. He was famous for capturing the grittier aspects of the city, but also documented high society, including the ballet, opera, and intellectuals - among them his friends and contemporaries like Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Henri Matisse. The exhibition at Foam traces his career with over 170 vintage prints, plus a selection of drawings, a sculpture and documentary material.
