Created in 2001 by artist Ange Leccia, the Pavillon Neuflize OBC, is the research lab of the Palais de Tokyo. It welcomes residents to an area right in the heart of the exhibition spaces for exploring new talents with a focus on the emerging contemporary art scene.
This year the revamped Pavillon Neuflize OBC welcomed six artists from November to June. The workshop abroad (this time in the SeMA Museum and his program of residency Nanji-SeMA in Seoul, South Korea) remains a highlight of the residency but the artists also had the occasion to make some fascinating connections in projects such as their collaboration with the Paris Opera.
The Lundis du Pavillon programme also brings together the foreign residents in a series of monthly Monday events. Propounding the ethos of diversity in sharing, the Pavillon thrives on this constantly new and fresh dialogue between people from difference walks of life.
Finally the individual projects of the artists saw them tackle very different formats, including exhibition modules, performance and interventions on the building.
Le Pavillon Neuflize OBC remains a vital platform for expressing art in an experimental form, which goes hand-in-hand with stimulation and risk-taking.
