Alec Soth

Magnum Gallery Paris presents Alec Soth, an exhibition that features work reaching from Sleeping by the Mississippi (2004), the artist’s first monograph, to his latest, I Know How Furiously Your Heart Is Beating (2019).

Soth’s wide-ranging lyrical visions of the American heartland portray daily life within the framework of American ideals of individualism, freedom and spirituality. Of his most recent work he writes “I wanted to strip the medium down to its primary elements. Rather than trying to make some sort of epic narrative about America, I wanted to simply spend time looking at other people and, hopefully, briefly glimpse their interior life.”
