The Artist’s View

▸ 07/03 – 04/06 ▸ MNHA ▸

Alongside the exhibition Inspired by Steichen, Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf and Belgian visual artist Hans Op de Beeck have combined their skills to provide a new perspective on the work of Luxembourg-born American photographer Edward Steichen. To do this, they have chosen around 20 of the artist’s photographs among the 178 images from the museum’s collection (bequeathed by Edward Steichen himself) and from a set of photographs owned by the City of Luxembourg. Making this selection was far from easy given the range of Steichen’s oeuvre. Olaf and Op de Beeck’s curation demonstrates the continued universal impact of the photographer’s work.
