MYOP in Arles 2019

MYOP in Arles 2019
MYOP in Arles 2019
July 1-7, 2019 - 95 rue du Cloître, 13200 Arles
For the second consecutive year, the photographers of Agence MYOP will occupy an abandoned school in the heart of the old city, for the duration of the professional week of the Rencontres d'Arles.

This year's edition is dedicated to the collective and the common: What attitudes should we adopt in the face of the major social, ecological and humanitarian crises that are upon us? How is the collective created? How do we deal with the idea of belonging? Is it possible to unite forces while remaining open and curious about the world?

Throughout the professional week, the photographers of the Paris-based agency will present new exhibitions, organise meetings, conferences, a café and bar, concerts and parties, transforming this vast derelict building into a vibrant center for photography, sharing and creativity.

This is not the first time that the photographers of Agence MYOP have occupied abandoned buildings for pop-up photography shows in Arles or elsewhere. Last year, they created one of the most lively venues at the Rencontres. In 2015, in celebration of the first Photo London, they transformed two abandoned houses in the British capital. In July 2014, they invested a huge and sumptuous private mansion, on the rue de la Calade in Arles.

About Agence MYOP
Drawn together by the idea of assumed subjectivity, Agence MYOP was created in 2005 by the french photographers, Guillaume Bi-net and Lionel Charrier. The acronym, M.Y.O.P. is inspired from the first four letters of Paul Éluard's poem "Mes Yeux Objets Patients". The agency now represents 19 photographic authors who confront their visions of contemporary photography and question the world through the stories they tell.
