From one side of the ocean to the other, from one hemisphere to the other, a Brazilian city and a French town have a remarkably similar history. Brasilia and Le Havre were rebuilt after World War II by two leading twentieth-century architects: the former by Oscar Niemeyer (with Lucio Costa) as the new capital of Brazil; the latter by Auguste Perret (and his studio) following the bombing of 1944. The exhibition brings together the pictures taken by Lucien Hervé in Le Havre and Brasilia. Alongside these is a collection of works – photographs and videos – by young French and Brazilian artists: Jordi Colomer, Stéphane Couturier, Charles Decorps, George Dupin, Véronique Ellena, Lucien Hervé, Manuela Marques, Arthur Monteiro, Caio Reisewitz, Nancy Wilson-Pajic.
