altblog-Palais de Tokyo, Paris
For his first solo museum exhibition in France, Theaster Gates has initiated an entirely new project that explores social histories of migration and interracial relations using a specific episode in American history as his point of departure to address larger questions of black subjugation and the imperial sexual domination and racial mixing that resulted from it.

THE DREAM MACHINE

Grégory Chatonsky, Mue, 2017-2018
Les dimensions imposantes de la Grande halle sont l’occasion pour Grégory Chatonsky d’envisager de nouvelles conditions scénographiques d’un projet d’envergure intitulé The Dream Machine. Il crée un environnement immersif qui assimile la Grande halle à un centre de données ou data center. Un programme d’intelligence artificielle imaginé par Grégory Chatonsky apprend à générer des rêves à partir d’une base de données de 20000 témoignages de rêves recueillis à l’Université de Californie par Adam Schneider et G.William Domhoff. Ces récits sont ensuite lus et associés à des images produites par un réseau de neurones artificiels d’après des mots clés choisis. Les images issues de ces opérations d’apprentissage défilent sur les murs de la Grande halle transformée en chambre noire.

altblog – Gabriele Beveridge
Gabriele Beveridge’s materials frequently derive from sites of commerce, particularly those where we prepare and process our bodies, or more accurately where we pay others to perform labour on our surfaces. Display and presentation are persistent themes throughout the practice. Beveridge includes found photographic imagery, cropped posters and promotional material found in hair and nail salons, alongside photograms which are a new addition to the artist’s lexicon.

Comme à son habitude, Folkert de Jong utilise des sources historiques mais pour mieux les manipuler dans une histoire politique contemporaine. La manipulation est aussi bien formelle que symbolique.
