The new exhibition will be held in collaboration with the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin.
Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (NMNM) will be hosting a new exhibition dedicated to German-born Australian photographer Helmut Newton in the luxurious Villa Sauber from Friday, June 17th to November 13th, 2022.
Unconventional, provocative, destructive images. Helmut Newton, a leading fashion photographer accustomed to working with the most famous models such as Cindy Crawford, Monica Bellucci and Claudia Schiffer, is the most well-known nude and first published. When I got it, it caused a strong reaction.
Helmut Newton is shocking and disturbing. But above all, he is playing in conflict. Interweaving elegance and sexuality, photographers like to explore themes of intimacy, puppets, violence, death and even sadomasochism.
Very strong connection with the Principality
Most of his work is assembled in NMNM. Approximately 300 photographs taken in the French Riviera and Monaco, grouped by themes such as the Cannes Film Festival, Ballet de Monte Carlo, swimming pools and portraits. It contains pictures of Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie, showing Helmut’s bond. Newton and the Principality.
The artist and wife June, who was also a photographer under the pseudonym Alice Springs, moved to Monaco in 1981. At the end of the exhibition you can see the faithful reconstruction of their apartment.
A unique art event where you can rethink beauty and sensuality. Helmut Newton, who was very active from the 1960s until his death in 2004, is certainly not indifferent to anyone.
