Palais de Tokyo Names Artists for Its First US Exhibition with Expo Chicago 2017

The Palais de Tokyo has announced the participating artists for “Singing Stones,” curated by the museum’s Katell Jaffrès, an offsite exhibition that will open in conjunction with the 2017 Expo Chicago art fair as part of the museum’s “Hors les Murs” (Outside the Walls) program, which organizes satellite exhibitions at various art events around the world. The show will be held at the Roundhouse, a former horse stable on the campus of the DuSable Museum of African American History in South Chicago, designed by Burnham and Root, and erected in 1881. “Singing Stones” marks the museum’s first staging of a show on US soil. French and international artists will be creating new work for the exhibition through a residency partnership with Mana Contemporary Chicago.

The participating artists in “Singing Stones” are Wilfrid Almendra, Thomas Teurlai, the Floating Museum Collective, Florian Pugnaire, David Raffini, Raphaël Zarka, Dorian Gaudin, Guillaume Leblon, Daniel G. Baird, Bouchra Khalili, Cauleen Smith, Lola Gonzàlez, and Andrew Schachman. “Singing Stones” opens on September 12 and runs until October 29. The fair begins on September 13 and ends on September 17.
