DIORAMAS

Exhibition, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France.


From June 14, 2017 until September 10, 2017
Palais de Tokyo is staging Dioramas, an exhibition that explores the diorama as an unexpected source of inspiration for contemporary art. At the crossroads of art, cinema, and theatre, this cross-disciplinary show is the first large survey to the diorama with a renewed approach to the history of spectatorship, including the influence of science and technology on popular culture, fun fairs, and expos. Although the etymology of diorama is ‘to see through’, the device also ands as a screen onto which a world of fantasy and fiction merges with the display of knowledge and science.
