Palais De Tokyo Presents Tianzhuo Chen And We Love It!
Sex, drugs & Hip Hop, mixed with colors and kitsch. A really simplified explanation of what Palais de Tokyo in Paris presents during the very first solo exhibition in France of Chinese young artist Tianzhuo Chen, who is one of the most promising artists of his generation. He was born 1985 in Beijing/China, where he still lives and works. And his work is something else (in a positive way). He knows how to touch grotesquery, but is still making it cool. He uses elements from urban subcultures and just transforms it into the most daring way. And we mean the most daring way! For his solo exhibition at Palais de Tokyo, Tianzhuo Chen is putting together a collection of unseen works, like paintings, drawings, installations, videos and performances including one with artist and dancer Beio and the artist collective House of Drama) from Paris. If you are in Paris any time soon, itâs definitely worth seeing!
