Launching this September, we are thrilled to announce our in-house solo show: Marc Vallée: London & Paris 2011-2018.
Marc Vallée (b.1968) is a London-based documentary photographer whose work focuses on contemporary youth culture within the context of the neoliberal city. Marc’s work has been published and exhibited worldwide, while Tate Britain, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Museum of London and the Martin Parr Collection all hold his zines and photobooks in their collections. The Museum of London also purchased a selection of Marc’s prints, which are currently on show as part of the London Nights exhibition.
At Metro we’ve worked closely with Marc over the last few years, with London & Paris 2011-2018 culminating throughout the last few months, bringing together his vast anthology of work. Images from projects such Writers, Number Six, Vandals and the City, The Graffiti Trucks of Paris and The Graffiti Trucks of London will be shown collectively for the first time.
Curated by Director Steve Macleod, the exhibition is to be held within Metro Imaging’s Front of House, running from September 14th until December 21st, with the Private View being held Wednesday September 12th and will include B&W Digital Fibre-based Prints in Bespoke Frames, Direct to Media Printing on Brushed Dibond & Adhesive Vinyl.
