Radiance will be David LaChapelle’s first ever solo exhibition in Switzerland, from the 11th of October to the 25th of January 2020 at the Galerie des Bains in Geneva, Switzerland
Works from 1987-2019 explore various aspects of LaChapelle’s vast career to reveal the unique point of view which has expanded the definition of photography and established the image maker as a fixture in contemporary art.
Highlights of the exhibition include My Own Liz (2017), an homage to LaChapelle’s early mentor – Andy Warhol, as well as Rape of Africa (2009), a re-imagining of Sandro Botticelli’s Venus and After the Deluge: Statue (2012), a romantic bodement of temporal beauty set in this present biblical epoch. In Gas Shell (2012) a mundane symbol of the industrial revolution becomes a temple, reclaimed by its own bloodline in the prehistoric jungle. On view from LaChapelle’s newest series is Annunciation (2019), a vibrant interpretation of Announcement of Incarnation.
