Photo Elysee, Lausanne, CH
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 exhibition first examines the interplay between the expansion of the railroad, the advent of the cinema and the creative endeavors of the artistic and literary avant-garde artists of the first half of the 20th century.
This exhibition is part of the new project Plateforme 10, a new district for art in Lausanne: next to the train station, two majestuous buildings and three museums create a dialogue between fine arts, photography and contemporary design.
