Alice Neel at Musée de l'Elysée, Lausanne

June 17 - September 25, 2022

Train. Zug. Treno. Tren

Within the framework of the inaugural event Train Zug Treno Tren, the exhibition organized by Photo Elysée, Crossing Lines, explores new approaches to railway history for over more than a century and a half, from the earliest train experiences in the 19th century to its uses today.

The show creates a dialogue between photography (Ella Maillart, Sabine Weiss, René Burri, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Martine Franck, Jean Mohr, and Bernard Plossu), film (the Lumière brothers, Georges Méliès, and Charlie Chaplin), painting and drawing (Gustave Caillebotte, Paul Klee, Aloïse Corbaz, Pablo Picasso, and Andy Warhol), and literature (Blaise Cendrars).
