Palais de Tokyo presents a group exhibition in Chicago in partnership with the Institut français and EXPO CHICAGO (September 13-17, 2017), with the support of Fonds de dotation Emerige, alongside the Chicago Architecture Biennial, with the participation of the DuSable Museum of African American History, Mana Contemporary Chicago, the Graham Foundation and The Cultural Services of the French Embassy.

The exhibition, which brings together thirteen artists, including a designer, amidst one of Chicago’s iconic buildings, explores the multiple relationships between art and architecture. It is being presented in an architectural masterpiece, which is strongly rooted in the city’s history and will be reopening to the public for the first time for many years: The Roundhouse.

At the heart of this remarkable edifice, the show creates an intimate dialogue between original productions and pre-existent works. A selection of the onsite pieces, conceived and produced specifically for this event by guest artists in dialogue with the architectural envelope that surrounds them, distinguish themselves by providing a support, or a frame, for the works of other artists, while being artworks themselves.

With: Wilfrid Almendra, Daniel G. Baird, Bouchra Khalili, Dorian Gaudin, Lola Gonzàlez, Guillaume Leblon, Floating Museum, Florian Pugnaire & David Raffini, Andrew Schachman, Cauleen Smith, Thomas Teurlai, Raphaël Zarka.
