The Palais de Tokyo is offering its new season, entitled Réclamer la terre, from April 15 to September 4, 2022. A season that hosts several exhibitions and artists, including Hélène Bertin, César Chevalier, Mimosa Echard and Laura Henno.

  • Thematic quick tour: the exhibition “Cut the wind in three” by Hélène Bertin and César ChevalSaturday May 14 from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Cutting the Wind in Three gives a hand to joyful experimentation, joint work and burning sensibilities to forge relationships between art and agriculture. Hélène Bertin opens the exhibition by assembling different types of objects.

  • Secret Palace Quick Tour: Lasco ProjectSaturday, May 14 from 9 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

International artists who inscribe the street in the history of art have thus carried out interventions, some monumental, others secret, which confront the raw architecture of the Palais de Tokyo and which infiltrate its interstitial spaces ( corridors, stairs, passages).

  • Thematic quick tour: the “Sporal” exhibition by Mimosa EchardSaturday May 14 from 10 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

“Myxomycetes appear as robust, mysterious and indifferent forms of life, whose familiarity with the past and the future allows them to adapt as well to the decomposition of our social structures as to that of the environment; and to dream, in a confused and slimy form, the forms taken by technology. – Mimosa Échard. The exhibition is based on his first video game, produced in collaboration with developer Andréa Sardin and artist Aodhan Madden. It invites you to explore the cavities of an organism in perpetual transformation, inspired by the life cycle of the slime mold.

  • “Reclaiming the Land” Exhibition SeasonSaturday May 14 from 6 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

As a counterpoint, monographic exhibitions offer the views of artists inhabited by their immediate environment, carried by work and collective thought, by the sensitivity of plants and by the transmission of emancipatory and experimental knowledge:
– Hélène Bertin & César Chevalier, Cut the wind in three
– Mimosa Echard, Spora
– Laura Henno, Geouryao! Why are you afraid!
– Aïcha Snoussi, We were a thousand under the table
– A roof for silence
