A brand new series of monographic books published

New series of monographic books


In parallel with its magazine PALAIS, Palais de Tokyo is launching a brand new series of monographic books, published in conjunction with its exhibition program. Richly illustrated with many photos of Palais de Tokyo’s exhibitions, these books will offer the reader an extended experience of the encounter with the artists’ work.
The artists’ words will appear alongside original contributions by theoreticians, art critics, and curators, providing the reader with a deeper understanding of each artist’s background and of the genesis of their project for Palais de Tokyo. These books will allow the reader to follow the evolution of the artists’ reflection on their work. Reproductions of artworks, preparatory documents, visual references, and studio views will bear witness to each step in the artist’s process and accompany interviews and essays. Eagerly seeking out new talents in graphic design, Palais de Tokyo has entrusted the design of the first volumes in this collection to the graphic designer and artist Xavier Antin. A new graphic designer will be selected each year. This new series of monographic books is published in collaboration with Les presses du réel.
