(RE)OPENING OF PALAIS DE TOKYO

PALAIS DE TOKYO, PARIS

On 12th and 13th April 2012, the newly renovated and extended Palais de Tokyo in Paris will re-open its doors to the public for 28 hours of non-stop performances, concerts and artists installations. Under the impetus of its new President, Jean de Loisy, the Palais de Tokyo is earning itself a place on the list of “must visit” destinations on the international contemporary art circuit.

Following ten months of renovation works by the architects Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, who were also responsible for the design of the building’s first restoration in the late 1990s, the Palais de Tokyo now occupies the entire 22,000 m2 building (approx. 236,800 square feet), making it Europe’s largest contemporary art centre.

RICHARD SERRA

GAGOSIAN GALLERY

Throughout his career, Richard Serra has made drawings as an immediate and fundamental line of investigation in parallel with his sculptures. Using black paint stick or oil stick, heated to a viscous and sometimes fluid state, he creates elemental, strongly tactile forms, acting directly on the paper and encouraging the medium to accrete on the surface. These self-referential drawings do not imply surface and weight; rather, they are surface and weight.

CAPTURING THE MODEL, RODIN 300 DRAWINGS 1890-1917

MUSEE RODIN

We know Rodin the sculptor, but do we know Rodin the draftman? This exhibition presents a spectacular collection of 300 drawings of his last thirty years when drawing was the artist’s predominant form of expression. This late period of Rodin’s career demonstrates the extraordinary tension between the naturalism of a drawing, capturing a gesture, a movement in all its immediacy, and the increasing independence of line and color in the artist’s work. Rodin’s freedom in drawing contributed to opening an immense space for the artists of the 20th century.
