FROM ONE REVOLUTION TO ANOTHER Carte blanche to Jeremy Deller with Ed Hall, Alan Kane, Scott King, Matt Price, William Scott, Andrei Smirnov, Marc Touché, White Columns.
From the Industrial Revolution to the appearance of glam rock in England, by way of the electronic music in Soviet Union, the emergence of rock in France, the union banners of Ed Hall and the personal fictions of William Scott, the exhibition FROM ONE REVOLUTION TO ANOTHER explores fields in the margins of contemporary art and questions possible relationships between industrial and cultural revolutions. At the boundaries of history, anthropology and contemporary art, the exhibition mingles collective and personal histories in a unique way. Every year the Palais de Tokyo invites an artist to take on the role of curator and come up with an out-of-the-ordinary project. Enlisting the help of quite a few collaborators, Jeremy Deller, a winner of the prestigious Turner Prize, has devised an exhibition that defies categorization where the protagonists can escape being defined as artists and the objects presented are not always apprehended as works of art.
Opening every first Thursday of the month.
