From August 1st to 31st, FLAX will be hosting Fabien Danesi, curator and program director of Le Pavillon, the research lab and residency program of the groundbreaking Paris-based cultural institution, Palais de Tokyo. He will conduct research in LA’s diverse cultural communities in preparation for a series of events he will curate here in February 2018.

Danesi, a respected curator and lecturer in art history, will deploy video, performance, and music-based programs as a focal point, to illuminate his ongoing research on “The Dialectic of the Stars”. This initial exploration will result in events that will feature French and American artists, who will come to perform and/or produce new artworks in our midst. Each event will be presented at a unique venue in Los Angeles and blend into our local partners’ programming, through a dialogue with Fabien Danesi, about Los Angeles’ art scene and local artists. The series will draw a constellation of venues, a “star path” to be followed by the public, which will be invited to drift all over the city, attending events.

The 2017 invitation is an opportunity to introduce the L.A. arts scene to the French curator and allow him to include L.A.-based artists in his projects in Paris. Additionally, a specific project will be developed with FLAX, bringing one or several of the L.A.-based artists to participate at an event at the Mona Bismarck American Center in Paris.
