Exhibition: Emmanuel Saulnier, Black Dancing


Since last February 3rd and until May 8th 2017, the Palais de Tokyo welcomes the works of art of Emmanuel Saulnier, for his exhibition entitled “Black Dancing”. The retrospective falls into three parts, and presents the work mainly sculptural of the artist, constantly swopping with the practice of drawing. Emmanuel Saulnier evokes in his works the topics of the presence, the disappearance and the collective memory. Thus, the first exhibition part invites the visitor to explore a room where the floor is covered with tarmac pieces from a public building site.  A dark room that contrasts with the next one, wide and luminous. The exhibition also presents a series of pieces called “Round Midnight”, which pays tribute to the American jazz pianist Thelonious Monk and his improvisational style. This event is to discover just a few blocks away only from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni, not far from the Eiffel Tower.

Exhibition “Emmanuel Saulnier – Black Dancing”, from February 3rd to May 8th 2017.
Open every day, except on Tuesday, from noon to midnight.
Full rate: €12.5 / Concessions (18-25 years): €9.4.
