Book it now: Acqua #6 at the Grand Palais, Paris
by Zoe Dickens
Acqua, the art exhibition dedicated to photography on the theme of water, returns to the Grand Palais, Paris for its sixth edition this autumn.
Presented by Paris Photo, in association with long-standing partner Giorgio Armani, Acqua #6 is subtitled ‘Reflecting on water’ and will focus on works that play with light and shape to create optical illusions and fluid, poetic imagery from their subject matter.
The works themselves have been hand selected by Armani and include pieces by established and emerging artists including Lee Friedlander, Debra Bloomfield, Helen Almeida, Noémie Goudal and Lucien Clergue.
As the owner of the 64.98 metre Codecasa superyacht Main, water and the ocean have always played a big part in Armani’s life and its influence is often clear to see in his fashion and interior designs.
After 40 years of spending time at sea, Armani has also come to recognise its importance on a social level and in 2009 the designer founded the Acqua for Life charity to provide clean drinking water for all. The charity’s latest campaign collected millions of litres of water which were distributed across several countries in need by Green Cross International.
The Acqua #6 exhibition will take place from November 12-15, 2015 in the Salon d’Honneur at the Grand Palais, Paris. Visit parisphoto.com for more information.
