Palais de Tokyo: Carte Blanche All of the Above

On of my favourite contemporary spaces, the Palais de Tokyo, is undergoing massive renovations, and during this time are hosting selective exhibitions in the atrium and main auditorium.

John M Armleder curated a All Of the Above, by presenting a variety of art works by 20 different artists (including sculptures, videos, and paintings) in an non-traditional manner.  He staged the works on a multilevel platform allowing the viewer only a frontal viewpoint.

This intriguing display method gave me a whole different perspective and challenged the way I typically evaluate and look at art.  Generally by passing video – the small monitors really stood out between the imposing works around them.
