French Government Tourist Office / Maison de la France

As part of a cross-cultural educational and art project, eight U.S. college students were flown to France where they photographed their experience of modern Gallic life. They will now have the opportunity to see their work used in a major tourism advertising campaign created by France's national tourist office, Maison de la France.

The innovative project, called Jeunes Talents ("young talents") is intended to capture the spirit of modern France through the eyes of a new generation of American artists. In addition to the planned tourism campaign, photographs will be on view at Louis Stern Fine Arts, 9002 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood, in an exhibition also titled Jeunes Talents. VIP and press openings are set for Thursday, March 26 from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. The exhibition opens to the general public on Friday, March 27 and runs through April 11, 2009.

The collection of images is impressive in its array of expression and subject matter. Ranging from surreal to naturalistic in style and covering architecture, portraiture and landscape, the images reveal perspectives on contemporary society that could only have been seen with fresh eyes. Students were given free rein to interpret the daily life of the city where they were assigned, and the result is a radical departure from the traditional imagery of France.

Participating colleges include Art Center College of Design, California Institute of the Arts and Otis College of Art and Design in the Los Angeles region, and Loyola University in New Orleans. The program is a joint initiative of Maison de la France and French Cultural Services in Los Angeles. Other partners include Air Tahiti Nui, Rail Europe and France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX), a Los Angeles foundation dedicated to fostering a better understanding of France through public and cultural art events.

GENERAL PUBLIC: For further information on Jeunes Talents, the public is asked to please call (310) 235 3242.
