FEATURED ARTIST

JEAN BAUDRILLARD

Jean Baudrillard

The Conspiracy of Art: Part I is Château Shatto’s second solo presentation of Jean Baudrillard’s photography. This is the first occasion the gallery will present the chromogenic color prints that Baudrillard processed and exhibited in his lifetime, and which bear the artists signature and annotations on the reverse. Titled after Baudrillard’s rousing essay from 1996 and the book of the same name compiled by his longtime collaborator Sylvere Lotringer, the exhibition presents Baudrillard’s photographs alongside texts extracted from The Conspiracy of Art. Jean Baudrillard was born in Reims in 1929 and became a definitive sociologist, cultural critic and theorist of postmodernity. His photography has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale; Daelim Museum, Seoul; the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro and Times Museum, Guangzhou. Baudrillard’s work was the subject of a solo exhibition at Fridericianum, Kassel; and in 2018, a solo exhibition was curated by Eric Troncy at Académie Conti, Vosne-Romanée, concurrent with his inclusion in L’Almanach 18 at Le Consortium, Dijon. The show runs until May 25, 2019.
