After hosting a number of events in France last year, including a three-day art and technology festival at Paris’ La Gaîté lyrique, we’re coming back to Paris for a week-long residency from June 19-June 24.
Filmmaker Chris Milk‘s installation The Treachery of Sanctuary, which debuted this March in San Francisco, will be on view all week at CENTQUATRE. We’ll also be showcasing brand new work from Creators 1024 architecture.
As a follow-up to Monumenta 2011 with Anish Kapoor and Richie Hawtin, we’re partnering again with We Love Art to host a grand soirée at Nef du Grand Palais on Thursday, June 21st, the night of the annual Fête de la Musique—the biggest night of music in France.
Against the backdrop of contemporary artist Daniel Buren’s colorful, glass disk installation created for the Grand Palais’ Monumenta showcase this year, the night will be enlivened with back-to-back-to-back DJ sets by Four Tet, Caribou, and Jamie xx. The musical performances will be enhanced with a customized light installation by 1024 architecture, which will react in real time to the music. Social Print Studio and Intel Labs’ interactive installation #Creators Live will also be on display, letting users manipulate a real-time Instagram feed with their gestures.
Throughout the week, we’ll also be screening the French premiere of Ed Banger musician and filmmaker Quentin Dupieux‘s Wrong, and Montréal-based filmmaker Xavier Dolan’s Laurence Anyways, which was a hit in the Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section this year. On Tuesday Philippe Zdar and special guests will host a panel discussion on the Art of Music. LAb[au] and Electronic Shadow will also discuss the idea of The Artist as Researcher.
RSVP IS REQUIRED for all events except Chris Milk’s The Treachery of Sanctuary. RSVP by visiting the event page and clicking on the links underneath the events you’d like to attend.
