Event Details

Within the framework of the anniversary of the events in May 68, the Alliance Française Ottawa, in partnership with l’association des Amis de Philippe Gras and les Films des quatre Planètes, with the support of l’Institut français, has the pleasure to invite you to come and get a close look at an unprecedented photography exhibition.

A protest movement launched by students and workers against traditional society and authority, May 68 is a movement of unprecedented magnitude that takes on the appearance of revolution.  At Nanterre University, students, claim a liberalization of morals. Speeches, debates and general assemblies take place on the streets, businesses, administrations and universities.

This exhibition of photographs taken by Philippe Gras during May 1968 in France is a testimony. During the Parisian events, photographers were numerous. Philippe Gras is one of those photographers who knew how to capture not only the moment and the getsure, but also the sign and meaning of this period of innovation and contest.
