IN THE NEWS
Alex Prager, Galerie des Galeries, Paris
Galerie des Galeries will host the first solo exhibition in France by Alex Prager. On this occasion, a selection of the photographer and filmmaker’s most recent works, including her latest film, will be on display. Prager is known for intricately staged works that draw on the drama of the Golden Age of Hollywood films to explore uncanny elements of today’s individual and social life. Los Angeles, where she was born, has been a huge source of inspiration in her work, both in terms of subject matter and in the way she utilises the movie industry in order to create her films and photographs. From 20 October.
