The Regional Council gives carte blanche to Niépce Museum to honor contemporary photography at the Hotel de Region. As part of its policy of supporting the visual arts, it carries in fact a particularly close look at the valuation of young contemporary artists.
A selection of ten photographs from Stanislas Guigui of the "Bolero Bogotano" series is shown with four other young photographers supported by the museum: Pétremant Philippe François Burgun, Virginia Marnat-Leempoels and Mazaccio & Drowilal.

As if coming out of some 60’s films, celebrating six shooters and highwaymen, the Mariachis groups are a true part of folk culture in Colombia. Musicians offer their services for 30$ an hour and are sought for to celebrate important events (departures, weddings, burials, births…) or just for parties.

The Mariachis are of Mexican origin and wear a typical suit called charro, the famous sombrero hat, and interpret serenades, romantic ballads or boleros. The groups are formed by 1 to 7 musicians who play the guitar, trumpet, acordeon, violin and bass. These minstrels of another time have cowboy mindsets and have a reputation for heavy drinking which usually ends up in free-for-all fights.? The Mariachis are very appreciated by the drug dealers who pay them to write songs, the narco corridos.

Born in Mexico around 30 years ago, the corridos are traditional folk songs which praise the feats of heroes like Pancho Villa the revolutionary. With the development of drug trafficking more and more of these songs have been written to narrate the smugglers’ adventures. These ballads are often requested by the smugglers themselves who are ready to pay for their adventures, their thefts and their confrontations with the police be put into songs.

Opening : Friday, February 28th
