City/Cité: Theater of Life
October 4 – October 27
Opening event October 4, 6-8:30pm
Exhibition will run from October 4–October 27
Photographers Ken West and Yoanne Lamoulère present selected images that show the similarities of the human condition in Atlanta and Marseille, despite obvious differences in the built and natural environments of those cities. In Theater of Life, these photographs draw connections between people and their relationships in/with public space, in ways that frame even the simplest and subtlest of moments as a personal, social, or political statement.
An event celebrating the exhibition opening will be held Wednesday, October 4, 2023 from 6-8:30pm. Join us for a discussion with the artists and curators, including a light reception.

- 6:30pm: Reception (located at South Dwntn marketing center, 170 Mitchell Street SW)
- 7pm: Artist talk (located at South Dwntn marketing center, 170 Mitchell Street SW)
Designed in 2015 and first implemented in Chicago and San Francisco, City/Cité is a transatlantic cooperation and exchange program on urban issues and city making, initiated by Villa Albertine. Coming to Atlanta for the second time, City/Cité Atlanta x Marseille 2023 will host discussions and artistic programming that highlight connections in culture, urban development, and society between Atlanta and Marseille.
Theater of Life is presented by Villa Albertine as part of City/Cité Atlanta x Marseille, ELEVATE, and France-Atlanta, in partnership with AMI/Friche la Belle de Mai. Made possible with the support of the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and the Institut Français.
Theater of Life is curated by Floyd Hall and Elodie Le Breut.
