In May 1968, Parisian students marched down the street in protests that quickly spread throughout France. The country came to a near-standstill.
This unique exhibition of works by late French photographer Philippe Gras tells the story of May ’68, fifty years after the event, translating the passions of the moment,
the joyfulness that striking students and workers frequently displayed.
The exhibition also displays documentaries filmed by the historian and filmmaker Dominique Beaux, bringing a different insight to the May ’68 events.
Philippe Gras (1942-2007) devoted equal attention to popular culture and to all kinds of neglected visual productions, and also to musical productions coming
from all the continents. He developed deep and long-lasting friendships with many musicians and creators.
Opening on 29 June 2018 from 6pm to 8pm
