All the information about the application to Le Pavillon -study program of the Palais de Tokyo, site for contemporary arts- is now available at the following address:

Deadline for application : 7 may 2002


Le Pavillon is a study program at the Palais de Tokyo, designed as a kind of laboratory for art and artmaking. Le Pavillon offers its participants both a space for research and discussion, and a studio to work in. Headed by Ange Leccia, Le Pavillon welcomed its first group of artists in November 2001. Work at Le Pavillon is punctuated by workshops and encounters with artists, architects, critics and curators invited by the teaching staff or the participants themselves.

For 2001-2002, the artist-teacher Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster selected the theme of art and architecture of the future as the program’s line of research. Taking as her starting point science fiction novels and films, Ms. Gonzalez-Foerster proposed to explore a specific area, i.e. Mexico, where a workshop was organized in December 2001. That experience eventually gave rise to a presentation of the show "Los Flamingos" at the Palais de Tokyo. Pierre Joseph subsequently chose to examine inter-generational transmission, while Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak (M/M Paris) set to work with participants on how they were to leave some record of their experience at Le Pavillon.

For the 2002-2003 season, Le Pavillon study program will accept ten artists who would like to participate in a collective work experience that takes as its starting point an image, the Delta. Working with the teaching staff, this group will realize one or more collective projects grounded in a dynamic interaction with the staff of the Palais de Tokyo and visitors to the art center. In choosing candidates, the selection committee will focus especially on the quality of the project they propose to develop from the program’s initial idea.
