Julien Creuzet exhibition, Palais de Tokyo

20th February to 12th May 2019
This multi-sensory experience combines music with art and sculpture to create a passage through time and space, art and culture. About the exhibition, Creuzet says “With an exhibition, you can tell a story and this story can take on the form of a fiction. […] I tend to offer visions, and work out a fiction when I start thinking, and create forms, while putting different forms into a relationship, or a way of navigating… I decide how I want things to be seen”. Don’t miss the chance to see his art for yourself this March.
