New donations to the Musée de l’Elysée

SHARE

The Musée de l’Elysée is enriching its collections with important new donations. The first is the totality of the archives of the American-born photographer Jan Groover (1943–2012). The Groover archives represent a total of 12,000 phototypes composed of negatives, slides, contact sheets, albums, working and exhibition prints. Her work will be featured in a major exhibition in 2019 after the entire the collection has been processed. The second donation consists of fifteen Cibachrome prints by the French-Swiss photographer Olivier Föllmi. These prints are among the last to be produced at the Dufau Studio. This announcement prefigures the donation of the artist’s entire archives, which will take place after the museum’s move to the PLATEFORME 10 site.

Swiss collector Fabienne Levy has chosen to donate a collection of seventeen works to the institution, including nine photographers representative of the contemporary art photography scene. This donation is devoted to contemporary German creation over the past 20 years, as well as to a generation of digital-savvy photographers using the multiple possibilities offered by digital technology.

The museum’s library also received a large donation of 150 Chinese photography books by Weixing Zhong of the Chengdu International Photography Center. This set of books, unique in Europe, will be a prized addition to the 20,000 books in the museum’s library and, in particular, to its Chinese and Japanese photography book collection.
