Art festival in Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
A large-scale event organised by 21 international young curators (hailing from 13 different countries) who transform the entirety of Palais de Tokyo’s exhibition space and spread out throughout the city, involving some 30 galleries. Together, 50 proposals will mark an unprecedented moment in the artistic life of Paris and present a fresh perspective on today’s artistic practices. This event emphasises the emergence of a new definition of the curator, a position that has flourished alongside the artist for the past decades, an essential figure who organises exhibitions across the globe and is neither an art dealer or an institutional curator.
