Palais de Tokyo

Publications by the Palais de Tokyo, one of the leading contemporary art institutions located in Paris.

A new series of monographic books is published, with Les presses du réel, in conjunction with the Palais de Tokyo's exhibition program. Richly illustrated, with many views of the exhibition, accessible to all, each book will offer the reader an extended experience of the encounter with the artists' work. The artists' words will appear alongside original contributions by theoreticians, art critics, and curators, providing the reader with a deeper understanding of each artist's background and of the genesis of their project for the Palais de Tokyo. These books will allow the reader to follow the evolution of the artists' reflection on their work. Reproductions of artworks, preparatory documents, visual references, and studio views will bear witness to each step in the artist's process and accompany interviews and essays.

Palais - Future, Former, Fugitive
2019
bilingual edition (English / French)
The issue 30 of the magazine Palais is published on the occasion of the exhibition “Future, Former, Fugitive,” presented at Palais de Tokyo from 16 October 2019 to 5 January 2020. This exhibition devoted to a French scene is based on an open view of belonging to a land and it escapes from the effects of a tabula rasa dictating that one generation eclipses another. It unites a good forty artists born between the 1930s and the 1990s, but who all live and work in and within their era.
