Women In Motion: photography events in November
Traditionally dedicated to photography, November in Paris provides an opportunity to (re)discover artists and works through many events. For the third consecutive year, Women In Motion supports the Elles X Paris Photo exhibition at the Grand Palais Ephémère. Kering also wished to hold events honoring the photographer Sabine Weiss, winner of the 2020 Women In Motion Award for Photography, who passed away at this time last year. Discover all the Women In Motion events scheduled for November on this page.
For the past three years, Women In Motion has supported Elles X Paris Photo, a selection of works and interviews by women photographers exhibited at the Paris Photo international art fair. Curated by Federica Chiocchetti, director of the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Le Locle, Switzerland, the 2022 exhibition comprises a selection of 77 photographic works.
As part of this partnership, Women In Motion also will be supporting a day of conversations on Thursday, November 10th, organized and presented by Federica Chiocchetti at the Grand Palais Ephémère.
Launched in 2018 in partnership with France’s Ministry of Culture, the Elles X Paris Photo circuit has been supported by Women In Motion since 2020. This itinerary through the show's aisles was designed as way to discover wonders, treasures and surprises from various galleries and publishers.
The Elles X Paris Photo exhibition will be held at the Grand Palais Ephémère from November 10th to 13th, 2022.

Following the photographer's death last year, Kering wished to honor the memory of Sabine Weiss, winner of the 2020 Women In Motion Award for Photography. On November 10th, the Group will host a preview of Le Siècle de Sabine Weiss, a documentary directed by Camille Ménager and produced by Brotherfilms. This unique film reflects on the life of an artist who greatly influenced French humanist photography. The documentary will then be broadcast on the television channel France 5 in early 2023.
Kering is also lending its support to the publication of the latest special issue in the Women In Motion collection. This new edition, published by Fisheye, will be available at newsstands and bookstores starting November 10th, 2022.
Upon receiving her Award in 2020, Sabine Weiss recorded an episode for the Women In Motion podcast. In an interview with Géraldine Sarratia, she shared what first drew her to photography, and discussed her career in France and abroad as well as the challenges of being a woman in what, in the 1960s, was considered a man's industry. An enlightening discussion, worth many a listen!
