Jin Yuan, from the series "Grow From Elapses", 2016-2017


From 01 July to 27 September 2020

Launched in 2005 and repeated every five years, the reGeneration project devoted to emerging international photography will be holding its fourth event for the Musée de l’Elysée’s 35th anniversary. In 2021, shortly before it moves into a new building designed to meet its needs, the Musée de l’Elysée hopes to make reGeneration a gateway between a past to promote and a future to map out. Rather than going through schools of art and photography to choose works to exhibit – as has been done in the past – the Musée de l’Elysée contacted the 180 photographers of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd editions to follow their progress and ask them, this time, to suggest candidates for reGeneration4.

Cartography of an exhibition

Accessible online the reGeneration_web platform proposes an interactive map of the exhibition for the purpose of spotlighting the community that has grown up around the project over the last 15 years. By playing around with the filters, the viewer can draw the links between photographers, institutions and schools. The platform also provides access to the artist’s biographies.
