Magazine PALAIS N° 26
Camille Henrot – “Days are Dogs”

On the occasion of her carte blanche at the Palais de Tokyo from 18 October 2017 to 7 January 2018, the French artist Camile Henrot is the guest editor-in-chief of this issue 26 of the magazine PALAIS, devoted entirely to the exhibition “Days are Dogs.”

For this exhibition, Camille Henrot brings together an extensive group of her own works along with contributions from international artists with whom she maintains a productive dialogue. The invited artists are David Horvitz, Maria Loboda, Nancy Lupo, Samara Scott, and Avery Singer, as well as the poet Jacob Bromberg. The exhibition “Days are Dogs” explores the ways in which the invention of the seven-day week structures our relationship to time. It reveals the way the notion of the week reassures us—giving us routines and a common framework—just as much as it alienates us, creating a set of constraints and dependencies. Each of the seven parts of the exhibition is accordingly dedicated to a day of the week, an allegory for a series of emotions and activities associated with each day which the artworks reflect.

Following this same organisation into seven parts, this issue of the magazine PALAIS explores the different themes of the exhibition.
With: texts by Ben Eastham, Orit Gat, Haidy Geismar, Chris Kraus, Miranda Lash in conversation with Lora Ann Chaisson, Chris Sharp and Polly Staple; an interview with Camille Henrot by Daria de Beauvais, the exhibition’s curator; with original contributions by the guest artists: Jacob Bromberg, David Horvitz, Maria Loboda, Nancy Lupo, Samara Scott and Avery Singer; as well as a large selection of images of Camille Henrot’s works.

Bilingual edition (French / English); 22.5 x 28.5 cm (paperback); 192 pages (colour illustrations)

Magazine PALAIS # 25 - The Dream of Forms

The magazine PALAIS is devoting its issue # 25 to the exhibition “Le Rêve des formes” [The Dream of Forms], presented at the Palais de Tokyo from 14 June to 10 September 2017, and organised on the occasion of the twentieth birthday of Le Fresnoy – Studio National des Arts Contemporains.

The exhibition “Le Rêve des formes” has been conceived as an imaginary landscape, a monstrous garden cultivating perishable forms, germinating surfaces, and protuberant organisms. With a good forty artists and scientists, the show has been designed along two routes: on the one hand, the rediscovery of the world of the living in all of its diversity, through an exploration of dynamic, mimetic or naturalistic forms; on the other, an exploration of mutant or algorithmic forms, inspired by mathematics, computing and artificial intelligence. The exhibition “Le Rêve des formes” aims at questioning the meeting points between artistic and scientific research: how do today’s artists and scientists come up with original visual solutions, which help to reinvent the geometry of thought, outside familiar territories?

In this issue

Alain Fleischer and Claire Moulène, the exhibition’s curators,introduce what is at stake in the exhibition “Le Rêve des formes.” Olivier Perriquet presents the work of the research group which, at Le Fresnoy, brought together both artists and scientists from different fields around the question of the “incertitude of forms,” thus preceding and nourishing the exhibition “Le Rêve des forms.”

* Special contributions from artists and scientists taking part in the exhibition

The artist Anicka Yi is here in conversation with three biology researchers she recently worked with on the conception of new works. The composer Arnaud Petit explores how music creates a dialogue between words, writing and mathematics. The artist Hicham Berrada and the researcher Annick Lesne focus on moving, self-organised forms. The stage director Jean-François Peyret and the neurobiologist Alain Prochiantz share their fascination in primates through a mischievous encyclopaedia. The artist SMITH and the cosmologist Jean-Philippe Uzan have imagined the history of a new humanity, on a quest for an organic link with the stars. Bertrand Dezoteux, in an animated film, has invented an interconnected world inspired from the research of the biologist Lynn Margulis into the arrival and development of life on earth.

* In a special dossier

The literature researcher Marielle Macé is in conversation with Claire Moulène about the “forms of life.” In a “speculative fantasy,” the biologist, philosopher and science historian Donna Haraway imagines a symbiotic future between the various species on earth. Jens Hauser, exhibition curator and mediology researcher, analyses how, by adopting biotechnologies as a medium, artists have shaken up the relationship between art and life. The philosopher Fréderic Neyrat examines our humanism in an essay about transhumans, posthumans, androids and cyborgs.

“I Love John Giorno”
The magazine of the Palais de Tokyo

Issue 22 of PALAIS magazine is entirely devoted to the Ugo Rondinone’s exhibition “I Love John Giorno” at the Palais de Tokyo (October 21, 2015 - January 10, 2016), the first retrospective of the life and work of the American poet John Giorno, a key figure of America’s counterculture since the 1960s.

An iconic character in Andy Warhol’s early films, Giorno was influenced by Pop artists who opened his eyes to the idea of “found poetry,” and he captured the real-life colloquial language of advertisements, television, newspapers, and street slang. Seeking to create a new audience and a new relevance for poetry since the mid-1960s, Giorno has developed viral strategies to share poetry with as many people as possible. Whether recorded on albums or on an answering machine, silk-printed or painted on canvas, proclaimed on a stage or de-structured on the pages of a book, Giorno’s poems are images capable of limitless forms of technological reproduction.

With the exhibition “I Love John Giorno,” that he conceived as a work of art in its own right, Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone has reinvented the retrospective format as portraiture. “Taken as a whole, the eight chapters of the exhibition reflect how John Giorno works and help us to understand the dual influences that American culture and Buddhism had on his life and art.” (Ugo Rondinone)

Featured in issue 22:

This issue of PALAIS magazine follows the organization of the exhibition in eight chapters, each standing for one facet of John Giorno’s multifarious work and life. It includes a series of original contributions and artists’ testimonials, documents from John Giorno’s personal archives, and also a selection of John Giorno’s writings.

With contributions by: John Giorno; Ugo Rondinone; Florence Ostende, the curator of the exhibition; Marcus Boon, Laura Hoptman, Daniel Kane and Jean-Jacques Lebel concerning John Giorno’s oeuvre; Bruce Jenkins on John Giorno and Andy Warhol; Marcia Bassett and Anastasia Clarke on John Giorno’s archives; Nathalie Bazin and Vivian Kurz on Tibetan Buddhism and its importance for John Giorno; Anne Collier and Matthew Higgs about Giorno Poetry Systems; as well as by Verne Dawson, Judith Eisler, Pierre Huygue, Françoise Janicot, Scott King, Gérard-Georges Lemaire, Elizabeth Peyton, Michael Stipe, Billy Sullivan, Rirkrit Tiravanija.

PALAIS # 21 - “At the Edge of the Worlds”
The magazine of the Palais de Tokyo

Issue #21 of PALAIS is entirely devoted to the exhibition “Le Bord des mondes” [“At the Edge of the Worlds”] at the Palais de Tokyo (February-May 2015). By exploring territories that lie outside the art world and bringing to light unique gestures that give way to new forms of creation, the exhibition “Le Bord des mondes” aims to renew and expand the field of our artistic attentiveness in an attempt to see, experience and conceptualize the world by liberating ourselves from the categories that order it.

Featured in issue 21:

The curator of “Le Bord des mondes”, Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, presents the stakes at the heart of the exhibition and invites readers to discover the research undertaken by these creators, which goes beyond the classic definitions of art.
Jean-Marie Schaeffer, philosopher, presents a view which runs counter to a position that seeks to oppose art and everything that is not art. He considers art to be a plural world which is constantly redefining its reach and nature through its interactions and exchanges with the multiple worlds that border it.
The writer and art critic Brian Dillon proposes a classification of the forms and the individuals who have played a role in the history of the way we have examined and exhibited the world. A historical perspective on the spirit of curiosity that abounds in the exhibition “Le Bord des mondes.”

And also
David Raymond, artist, writer and poet, examines Bridget Polk’s “balancing rock” installations; Laurent Derobert, inventor of “existential mathematics,” discusses the relationship between math, art and love with the mathematician Edward Frenkel and the artist Peter Coffin; Philippe Rekacewicz, geographer, cartographer and journalist, guides us in the perusal of a map to an imaginary world invented by Jerry Gretzinger; Sandra Maunac, curator, retraces the history of Kinshasa Sape, while revealing its close connections with the city’s music scene; Hiroshi Ishiguro, who creates “geminoid” robots, talks with composer Keiichiro Shibuya, author of an opera written for the vocal synthesizer software Vocaloid; with his “beach creatures” able to move and survive autonomously, Theo Jansen throws our anthropocentrism into fresh perspective; Frédérique Aït Touati, a literature and science history researcher and stage director, dives into the heart of Tomás Saraceno’s spider webs; the food essayist Bénédict Beaugé supplies an in-depth analysis of one of Pierre Gagnaire’s dishes; Jean-Paul Thibeau, artist-researcher, tells about his meeting with Jean Katambayi, an artist-hacker-DIYer; Jane Venis, sculptor and writer, offers a study on the founding principles of chindogu, weird objects invented by Kenji Kawakami.

As well as
CKY, Carlos Espinosa, Rose-Lynn Fisher, Game of States, Iris van Herpen, Zdenek Kosek, Jesse Krimes, Kusköy, Charlie Le Mindu, Arnold Odermatt, Le Prince noir, George Widener.

PALAIS Issue 18

Palais N°18

PALAIS Issue 18

Out on June 20th 2013

In this issue: contributions of young curators presenting their exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo and in Parisian galleries and art spaces, as well as the issue 7 ½  of the journal The Exhibitionist.

Published at the occasion of “Nouvelles vagues”, the 2013 summer season of the Palais de Tokyo, this issue of PALAIS underlines the importance of the recently defined curator figure and sheds light upon current exhibition practices developed by the latter. This figure, which emerged in the context of a general questioning of the artistic institutions in the 1960s, has now become inseparable of a reinterpretation of art history through the prism of the exhibition as a medium. In order to testify about this transformation in the art ecosystem, the Palais de Tokyo presents the projects of 21 young curators or curator groups (of 13 different nationalities) selected after an international call for proposals, and leads along 32 galleries and art spaces all over Paris.
The magazine PALAIS devotes its issue #18 to the 53 exhibitions that constitute “Nouvelles Vagues,” including original contributions by the young curators invited by the Palais de Tokyo and the Parisian galleries.

Special guest for this issue: The Exhibitionist, an American journal on curatorial practices and exhibition making, offers a subjective exhibition history through six peculiar examples, in both English and French, covering 70 pages to be discovered inside PALAIS magazine.

Palais N°17

PALAIS Issue 17

Released on 25 February 2013

In this issue: Julio Le Parc, New Impressions of Raymond Roussel, François Curlet, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel, Joachim Koester, Evariste Richer…

Echoing the Palais de Tokyo’s new season, this issue of PALAIS is infused with the poetic genius of Raymond Roussel, great explorer of invented worlds, causing us constantly to topple over into a different mental geometry.


Contents of this issue: essays by Matthieu Poirier on Julio Le Parc, Niklas Maak on François Curlet, Dieter Roelstraete and Yann Chateigné Tytelman on recent works by Joachim Koester, Amélie Lavin on Dewar & Gicquel; visual contributions by Takahiro Iwasaki and Evariste Richer; a focus on seven artists from the emerging contemporary scene (Marcos Avila Forero, Hicham Berrada, Gauthier Leroy, Lars Morell, Jean-Michel Pancin, Pierre Paulin, Clémence Seilles); under the heading “Hell as discussion,” Nadja Argyropoulou, curator, and Yorgos Tzirtzilakis, architect, discuss Greece’s “demonization” as a symptom of the European crisis.

PALAIS also invites François Piron, curator of the exhibition “New Impressions of Raymond Roussel,” to create a dossier in dialogue with this venture. In it, he comments on the writer’s whimsical personality and on his mysterious work in which, as Roussel stated, “Nothing real must enter.” Accompanied by historians, by art critics and artists, Piron approaches the topic diagonally to consider the propagation of Roussel’s work through that of many artists.

PALAIS Issue 16

PALAIS No. 16

Release date: September 27, 2012 - Delivery within September 27th 2012

In this new issue: Imagination Adrift, Fabrice Hyber, Neïl Beloufa, Damir Ocko, Markus Schinwald, Ryan Gander, Helen Marten...

Following the development of an artist’s thought, witnessing the circumstances of his creativity, discerning the interval separating an idea from its execution, seeing the artist become accustomed to his own discoveries… Closely following the creative process, this latest issue of PALAIS magazine is given over to the artists’ own words, presented in a variety of formats, echoing the exhibition program of the Palais de Tokyo.

Contents of this issue: Croatian artist Damir Očko speaks to the art historian Daniele Balit; Fabrice Hyber converses with Théo Mercier, Pierre Giquel, Pascal Rousseau and Jacqueline Frydman; a focus on eight artists from the emerging contemporary art scene (Iván Argote, Tjorg Douglas Beer, Jonathan Binet, Maxime Chanson, Mimosa Échard, Thierry Liegeois, Éponine Momenceau and Henrik Potter); an essay on Neïl Beloufa by the art critic Gaël Charbau and on Alexandre Kojève by the art historian Boris Groys; inserts, projects and visuals contributed by Helen Marten, Ryan Gander, Christian Marclay and the artists of the Pavillon; Alexis Vaillant visits Markus Schinwald’s studio. PALAIS has also invited the art critic and theorist Jill Gasparina to create a dossier that enters into dialogue with the exhibition “Imagination Adrift.” Inscribing the modern poetics of chance into a wider history of technologies and rationalization techniques, she outlines a complex history of the taming of chance in which relationships of authority, control procedures and emancipatory tactics combine.

Dossier edited by Jill Gasparina, with texts by Stewart Brand, Dunne & Raby, Éric Duyckaerts, Vilém Flusser, Holis Frampton, Jill Gasparina, Liam Gillick, Melanie Gilligan, André Gorz, Adam Greenfield, Boris Groys, Oliver Laric, Nathaniel Mellors, John Miller, Tony Oursler, Eli Pariser, David Robbins, Pierre Vadi, Camiel van Winkel.

Palais N°15 - special issue

Palais N°15

Palais N°15 - special issue

Special issue : the history of the Palais de Tokyo from 1937 to today, and until tomorrow.

Release date: April 12, 2012, on the occasion of the reopening of the Palais de Tokyo

Built for the 1937 Exposition Internationale in Paris to house the Musée National d’Art Moderne, the Palais de Tokyo has had a checkered history. Over seven decades of the history of the visual arts in France have come to be written through the openings, multiple renovations, and changing uses of the building. Since the beginning of the 21st century, the Site for Contemporary Art has occupied the Palais de Tokyo, left unfinished after the planned Palais du Cinéma was abandoned at the end of the 1990s. In 10 years, under the stewardship of its successive directors, Nicolas Bourriaud and Jérôme Sans, then Marc-Olivier Wahler, it has become an essential actor on the international art scene. In April 2012, an extended Palais de Tokyo will open its doors. With its 22,000 square meters of space renovated by the architects Lacaton & Vassal, it is broadening its mission to display the French scene in an international context. A new Palais de Tokyo, a place to explore, inhabited by artists, where, in the words of Jean de Loisy, its new president, “we do not work on art but with art, and it works on us.”
The magazine PALAIS, in the inaugural issue of its new formula, tells the story of this epic adventure in texts and images. Through several testimonials, interviews and multiple unpublished documents, it invites you to discover over seventy years of artistic life within the Palais de Tokyo.
