Following the development of an artist's thought, witnessing the circumstances of his creativity, discerning the interval separating an idea from its execution, seeing the artist become accustomed to his own discoveries… Closely following the creative process, this latest issue of Palais
magazine is given over to the artists' own words, presented in a variety of formats, echoing the exhibition program of the Palais de Tokyo.

has also invited the art critic and theorist Jill Gasparina to create a dossier that enters into dialogue with the exhibition “Imagination Adrift.” Inscribing the modern poetics of chance into a wider history of technologies and rationalization techniques, she outlines a complex history of the taming of chance in which relationships of authority, control procedures and emancipatory tactics combine.
