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.

It unites a good forty artists born between the 1930s and the 1990s, but who all live and work in and within their era.
