Magazine PALAIS #06

The Superdome is a legendary stadium: built in 1975 in New Orleans ( Louisiana ), it has hosted many Super Bowls (the finals of the American football championship), a concert by the Rolling Stones, Pope John Paul II, the Republican Convention, and refugees from Hurricane Katrina. Paradoxically the Superdome forms a bridge between superlative entertainment and total distress. Drawing inspiration from the additional schizophrenic logic of “I Can Get No Satisfaction” and “Our Father in heaven,” SUPERDOME brings together five solo exhibitions, oscillating between spectacle and conceits, decibels and prayers, high-tech and chaos, continuing the program of exhibitions testing the notion of the work of art's elasticity, first broached at the Palais de Tokyo with “Five Billion Years”. This issue of the magazine PALAIS / is edited and designed around SUPERDOME, with an excerpt of Naomi Klein's latest book, interviews (Jonathan Monk by Marc-Olivier Wahler , François Girbaud with Giraud & Siboni), portfolios (press images of Superdome, Arcangelo Sassolino), a “making of” (Daniel Firman), and also a guide section.
