Palais de Tokyo18.02.2016 #art
The new exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo opened their doors last week. Until May 16, 2016,””Arpenter l’intervalle”” honours liminal artists who wander between the arts and disciplines.
First main part: Jean-Michel Alberola’s solo exhibition, which features in’L’aventure des détails’ numerous unpublished and protean works, including a film on Saint Francis of Assisi, a lithograph depicting Queen Zenobia of Palmyra or a monumental drawing on fabric in dialogue with her famous Neons and several other wall paintings. A proposal that intends to map the unknown diversity of his work, exploring with him the intervals between aesthetics, politics, and feeling.
Then developed: the first monographic exhibition of the Quistrebert brothers (nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize 2014), which invests more than 1000m2 by deploying a vast otic theatre in which lights, videos and paintings lead the visitor to evolve between works whose experience is disturbed by the brilliance and internal movements of objects.
Tradition since 2012 within the contemporary institution: the artists invited, all generations confused, to intervene on its building. This season, we discover two new works by Stéphane Calais in the hall of the Palais, Vivien Roubaud’s flying canvas for the Palier d’Honneur, Babi Badalov’s scriptural wall and Shana Moulton and Martin Soto Climent’s in situ proposals.
Not to be forgotten: the exhibitions by Louidgi Beltrame (SAM Prize 2014), Simon Evans (Canson Prize 2014) and Sara Favriau (Friends of the ToT Discovery Prize 2014) which complete this rich and transversal programme. Review of the opening.
