Nouvelles vagues: 53 exhibitions all over Paris and at Palais de Tokyo

After «Cold Sun», Palais de Tokyo, along with thirty galleries and art spaces throughout Paris, innovates once more to emphasize the emergence of the figure of the curator. At Palais de Tokyo, “Nouvelles vagues” (New Waves) is a large-scale event organized by 21 international young curators (hailing from 13 different countries), working individually or in groups, and selected by a jury from over 500 candidates.

Opening on Thursday, 20 June beginning at 8pm!
Daily open, from noon to midnight!


Level 1 - Galerie Seine

Antonia Alampi and Jason Waite are two curators respectively based in Cairo and in New York, who have come together to reflect upon emerging artistic approaches to performative practice in relation to the present condition. The Real Thing? is an exhibition where diverse attitudes towards performance question the ambiguous terrain of reality/fiction, challenging these constructions and our mediated experience of what can be called 'real life'.

Jérôme Bel, Alicia Frankovich, Shadi Habib Allah, Chelsea Knight and Mark Tribe in collaboration with Valerie Oberleithner, Alexi Kukuljevic, Pilvi Takala, Diego Tonus and a contribution by Franco 'Bifo' Berardi
