Centre Culturel Suisse de Paris announces Catherine Ceresole: Other Music

. September 28, 2013

Centre Culturel Suisse de Paris presents Catherine Ceresole: Other Music an exhibition on view 18 October–8 December 2013.

Catherine Ceresole likes rock music. With her husband, Nicolas, an avid collector of vinyl albums, this native of Rolle arrived in New York in 1979 and quickly began shooting concerts, especially those of Sonic Youth in their early days. Ceresole showed her photos to the guitarist Thurston Moore, who liked them and urged her to stick with the medium. Thus, for twelve years, she was a regular at CBGB, Danceteria and other venues for rock and experimental music that featured artists like Nick Cave, Arto Lindsay, Iggy Pop, Suicide, Christian Marclay, Lydia Lunch, Beastie Boys and dozens of others. For several years now a number of artists from French-speaking Switzerland, including the pioneering Francis Baudevin, have shared with her a mutual passion for the history of rock and the art of photography at the edge of the stage. Following presentations at Circuit in Lausanne and a number of concert venues, CCS is pleased to mount her first solo show in France. www.ccsparis.com
