An exceptional collaboration between the Palais de Tokyo and the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris/ARC.

This exhibition prospects for a new generation of artists and presents them in the entirety of the combined exhibition spaces of both the Palais de Tokyo and the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris/ARC.

Dynasty gathers over forty artists in nearly 5000 m2, and indicates the strong commitment of these two institutions to emergent talent as well as a new phase of collaboration between the building’s two wings.

In sync with the guidelines pre-established by Marc-Olivier Wahler, Fabrice Hergott and their team of peers, each artist is invited to show two works that resonate together: one in the Palais de Tokyo and the other in the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris/ARC, thereby echoing the complementary nature of these two institutions and offering the artists unique opportunities to further develop the horizons of their artistic vision.

Stereo, symmetry, and dialectic – across a multiplicity of techniques and stylistic approaches, the project intends to reveal the energy that lives in these artists, as well as their investigations and their use of ambiguity or paradox.

Dynasty fits into on-going work of prospection conducted since 1977 by the ARC at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, notably with the Ateliers who have revealed numerous artists, and by the Modules of the Palais de Tokyo, which dedicates two monthlong exhibitions to young talent.

The project seeks to take the pulse of emergent artistic sensibility in France, to underscore both the common ground and the divergences, and to promote these works on the international art scene. It attests to the artistic boom in Paris as well as in other regions, in schools and art centers, in the Frac and alternative art spaces.
