Dior Beauty’s Most Exciting Young Photographers

Dior has been holding its Photography and Visual Arts Awards for Young Talents for the last five years. In partnership with LUMA Arles and ENSP, the project seeks to identify the most exciting emerging image-makers around the world, many of whom are hand-picked from the finest international art schools.

Shirin Neshat’s Land of Dreams

Iranian-born New York City resident Shirin Neshat is a visual artist best recognized for her work in photography, and film. Prior to the Iranian Islamic Revolution in 1974, Neshat traveled to Los Angeles to pursue her art studies.

The Dreamlife of Chechu Álava

The gauzy, auratic atmosphere of Chechu Álava’s paintings is often offset by the directness of her subject’s gaze. Amplified by her chosen palette of fleshy, pearlescent pinks and postmodern pastels, the effect is strangely erotic.

Lee Bae’s Union

UNION is the first solo exhibition by South Korean artist Lee Bae in Canada. With a focus on the artist’s Issu du feu (Emerging From Fire) series from 1999-2000, the exhibition spans a variety of different non-traditional media.
