EXPO VIDEO Curator | Daria de Beauvais — Palais de Tokyo
EXPO VIDEO highlights a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video, and new media works by artists selected from 2016 Exhibitors. The works on view are presented in a variety of screening formats including two large-format screening rooms, as well as several viewing stations designed by Studio Gang Architects. The 2016 program will be curated by Daria de Beauvais and will highlight some of the most exciting film, video and new media works being made today. Before taking on the role of curator at the Palais de Tokyo, de Beauvais worked with various institutions including the Biennale and Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Independent Curators International (ICI), New York; as well as galleries such as Zlotowski, Paris; Alessandra Bonomo, Rome; and Lili Marleen, New York. She is also a freelance curator, regularly sits on various juries and writes for a number of publications. De Beauvais’s recent exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo include Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, "acquaalta," 2015; "Inside", co-curated with Jean de Loisy and Katell Jaffrès, 2014; and Julio Le Parc, 2013. For her 2016 exhibition program at the institution, she is doing a focus on video, with a site-specific commission made to Shana Moulton (February – September, 2016) and an important solo exhibition of Mika Rottenberg (June – September, 2016).
