Apart from always having demanding shows (and great vernissage) the Palais de Tokyo has the funkiest best value photo-booth in town. For a mere 2 Euro you get 4 pictures and in black and white too, with a choice of a black or white background. Here are some pictures I made back in June.
The Palais de Tokyo is a building dedicated to modern and contemporary art, located at 13 avenue du Président-Wilson, near the Trocadéro, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. The eastern wing of the building belongs the City of Paris and hosts the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris). The western wing belongs to the French state and hosts since 2002, the Palais de Tokyo / Site de création contemporaine.
Running until September 5 is a show, DYNASTY - 1 exhibition, 2 locations, 40 artists, 80 propositions and is a never before seen collaboration between the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris/ARC and the Palais de Tokyo.
The Palais de Tokyo says this of the show: "The artists infuse the totality of the exhibition space and each of them presents, in a fresh stereophonic approach, a work in each of the two venues.
Through its many techniques and stylistic approaches, DYNASTY reveals the drive of a generation and the diversity of its preoccupations, ranging from the most experimental technoscience to the most intimate autofiction. Fragile materials are subject to usages that revalorize them while the development of the computer modeling transforms our grasp of space and objects.
This project continues the work of prospecting carried out previously by the Palais de Tokyo and by ARC at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris."
