A photographer, filmmaker and visual artist, Agnès Varda has produced a personal body of work over 70 years, fundamentally rooted in the times. A precursor of the Nouvelle Vague, she is one of the few women of her generation to have made a career as a director. Her filmography includes over forty short and feature-length films, ranging from fiction to documentary, including the essential Cléo de 5 à 7 (1962), Sans toit ni loi (1985) and Les Glaneurs et la Glaneuse (2000). A globetrotter and artist of conviction, Varda is also a keen observer of social upheaval. Featuring photographs, costumes, archives and installations, the exhibition will show how her polymorphous work, traversed by themes of feminism, ecology and marginality, is highly topical today.
