The New York Times. Clotilde Viannay.

Clotilde Viannay a conçu son projet en deux volets : un fac-similé fictif du New York Times et une exposition. Le journal porte la date du 12 octobre 1985, celle du début du récit d’une célèbre bande dessinée américaine d’Alan Moore intitulée Watchmen.

Constitués en confrérie, ces « gardiens » exercent le rôle de justiciers dans les années soixante. Ils se voient progressivement coupés de la société et de leurs appuis politiques. Après avoir gagné la guerre du Vietnam, évité le scandale du Watergate et bénéficié de la réélection de Nixon, le gouvernement américain, à l’aube des années quatre-vingt, abandonne le « gardien » qui lui est le plus dévoué, Jon Osterman. Devenu Dr Manhattan après un accident nucléaire, ce dernier est voué aux pires gémonies.

Pour réaliser ce New York Times fictif, Clotilde Viannay a commandé des articles uchroniques. Autant de textes qui révisent l’histoire sur le mode « et si » et qui, par la fiction, reviennent sur le contexte réel d’invention de ces super-héros. Parallèlement, l’exposition quasi ethnologique tente de faire exister les différents personnages pour analyser en profondeur leur personnalité.

“Alexis! What are you doing here?

“I’ve been asking that same question about you Krystle, and I still haven’t found an answer that satisfies me.”

For the occasion of the group exhibition DYNASTY, from June 11 to September 05, 2010 at the Palais de Tokyo and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris/ARC in Paris, the magazine PALAIS / will present its new issue # 12 at Motto Berlin, on Wednesday June 9, 2010, from 18h30.

The magazine PALAIS / invites the artists of DYNASTY to create forty innovative contributions—and just as many artistic visions, universes and personal stories—to be discovered in this special issue.

PALAIS / magazine 12, DYNASTY, summer 2010, 288 pages

Co-published by Cnap (Centre national des arts plastiques).

About the exhibition DYNASTY:
1 exhibition, 2 locations, 40 artists, 80 propositions: DYNASTY is the culmination of a never before seen collaboration between the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris/ARC and the Palais de Tokyo. The artists infuse the totality of the exhibition space and each of them presents, in a fresh stereophonic approach, a work in each of the two venues.
Through its many techniques and stylistic approaches, DYNASTY reveals the drive of a generation and the diversity of its preoccupations, ranging from the most experimental technoscience to the most intimate autofiction. Fragile materials are subject to usages that revalorize them while the development of the computer modeling transforms our grasp of space and objects.
This project continues the work of prospecting carried out previously by the Palais de Tokyo and by ARC at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.

Palais magazine from Paris has a brilliant new issue out. In conjunction with the exhibitions, events, lectures and performances in the Palais de Tokyo programme, every three months PALAIS / outlines the expanding artistic universe that programme reflects.

For its issue #4, PALAIS / has invited the artist Ugo Rondinone to create a special issue to tie up with the The Third Mind exhibition which he is curating (exhibition on show at the Palais de Tokyo from 27 September 2007 to 3 January 2008).

Consisting entirely of pictures, this issue documents the 350 works by the 30 artists chosen by Ugo Rondinone which will be presented at the Palais de Tokyo. A huge cut-up made by the artist with the 350 works of the artists of the group show, illustrated with 30 different covers, each copy of the magazine is a unique artist book, thanks to a pioneering random method of production. A collector’s item!

Burroughs & Brion Gysin, Valentin Carron, Vija Celmins, Bruce Connor, Verne Dawson, Jay DeFeo, Trisha Donnelly, Urs Fischer, Bruno Gironcoli, Robert Gober, Nancy Grossman, Hans Josephsohn, Toba Khedoori, Karen Kilimnik, Emma Kunz, Andrew Lord, Sarah Lucas, Hugo Markl, Cady Noland, Laurie Parsons, Jean-Frédéric Schnyder, Josh Smith, Paul Thek, Andy Warhol, Rebecca Warren, Sue Williams.
