Public Opening: Life in Colour & Blanco
On Thursday 21 January, you are invited to attend the public opening of two new exhibitions at Foam: Life in Colour, featuring the work of famed French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894 – 1986) and Blanco, the first major museum-based solo show by Awoiska van der Molen.

Lartigue was considered a genius at taking black-and-white photos of everyday life in the last century, particularly car races, aeroplanes and fashion. But his breath-taking colour photography is less well known. The exhibition Life in Colour reveals this seldom-seen aspect of his oeuvre.

Already in 2007, Foam presented Van der Molen’s work within the Foam 3h programme. Blanco features the monochrome landscape photography the artist has been working on since 2009.
