Now that curators have pulled and stretched the contemporary art exhibition to its full elastic potential, now that the contemporary art institution is conceived as the pluralistic host for any sort of artistic practice whatsoever, now that exhibitions can take place anywhere at any time and simultaneously offer the widest... continue reading
View of Pierre Huyghe, Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2013.
by

Vivian Sky Rehberg

I hate to admit this now, but my eyes rolled involuntarily when I first heard that the Centre Pompidou and the Palais de Tokyo would be holding solo exhibitions of work by Pierre Huyghe and Philippe Parreno, since both artists have already had major shows in Paris museums, but it... continue reading
