Season 2 - Imagine the imaginary
Date:28/09/2012 - 11/02/2013
As close as possible to the artist’s thinking, as close as possible to creation as it is taking shape, in the very wake of the invention of the artwork… the new season at the Palais de Tokyo, Imagine the Imaginary, brings together artists from different generations whose works demonstrate and sometimes describe the processes involved in their development.From the artist’s thinking to what the viewer introduces there are a thousand possible routes, all different from one another. Imagine the Imaginary draws up a moving, non-exhaustive mapping of that elasticity of art in construction.
Organized in two parts, the Imagine the Imaginary season opens on September 28 with a themed exhibition, the imagination Adrift, and a solo exhibition by Fabrice Hyber, Raw materials, which presents both older works and four landscapes dedicated to describing a world in which all the rules have been reinvented.
You will be able to explore the installation by Ryan Gander, a kind of imaginary mental library, an associative rebus presented to visitors in their wisdom, as well as semi-permanent installations by Bernard Aubertin, John Giorno and Takahiro Iwasaki. But there will also be an exhibition of contemporary Croat videos, the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent modules, the fashion program (Chloé. attitudes by Judith Clark, The Impossible Wardrobe by Olivier Saillard and Tilda Swinton), Jon Rafman, etc.
The second part of the Imagine the Imaginary season gets under way on October 17 with solo exhibitions by NeïL Beloufa, Damir Ocko, Markus Schinwald and Helen Marten (WINNER OF PRIX LAFAYETTE),
the exhibition After history: Alexandre Kojève photographer curated by Boris Groys, an exhibition Lost in LA, in Los Angeles, and from December 7 a new salvo of modules, The Enlightened Laboratory of Consolation staged by the École Supérieure d’Art from Avignon, and a solo exhibition by Asim Waqif (SAM ART PROJECTS resident).
