An exhibition on sports photography opened last week in The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland. From The Olympic Museum:

THE ART OF SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY
Original sports photos in the spotlight from 25 May to 19 November 2017

A six-month programme devoted to the art of sports photography, emotions and the crucial moment. You will never look at sports photos in the same way again.

What if photographing sport was a whole other art? The Olympic Museum in Lausanne is celebrating the 8th art from every angle with, at the top of the list, a major exhibition, “Who Shot Sports: A Photographic History, 1843 to the present” organised by the Brooklyn Museum; a retrospective of “Rio 2016: through the lens of four photographers”; a “best of” selection of 20 photos from the IOC’s collections; and finally, a big weekend event devoted to sports imagery.

Simultaneously with the exhibition, The Olympic Museum organizes a photo contest. Read more.

From The Olympic Museum:

13 OCTOBER 2016 – 07 MAY 2017

STADIUMS PAST AND FUTURE

The exhibition addresses the stadium through the relationship it maintains, both with the city in which it stands, and with the various protagonists involved.

We are attempting to observe the role and impact of the stadium as a whole, not only from an architectural point of view.

An exhibition in three parts
The first zone briefly retraces the long history of stadiums since Antiquity, starting with their basic functions: to delimit the area of a sports competition and bring together an enthusiastic audience.

The central part is focused on the Olympic Games London 2012, to show that a stadium is not only built for the 16 days of competition, but is also a project that runs for more than 30 years. Sustainable development and legacy are the key words here.

The Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and Rio 2016 editions of the Games will be examined to see what has become of the Olympic legacy, or what will become of it.
