PARIS, FRANCE.-From May 9th to June 25th, the Grand Palais, Paris, hosts the first staging of a new event showcasing contemporary creation in France. Launched by the Ministry of Culture and Communication at the Prime Minister's request, this initiative fulfills the important role of giving a higher profile to the diversity of artistic creation today.

In what will be a regular event, along the lines of the British Art Show and the Tate Triennial in the UK; the Greater New York at P.S.1 and the Whitney Biennial in the US, every three years the public will be given this opportunity to better understand and experience the different domains of contemporary art and its influence on how we represent our society.

The Minister of Culture and Communication has set up a "think tank" to carry this project through. It supports the idea of giving carte blanche to some fifteen personalities - artists, exhibition commissioners, museum directors and curators, art critics and historians, directors of art centres or of regional contemporary art collections (FRAC), and university professors - all representative of different generations and with different points of view on the current state of art.
Each will present their vision of contemporary creation through a wide selection of works, chosen among public and private collections: France's national contemporary art collection (CNAP/FNAC), the Georges Pompidou Centre - Museum of Modern Art (MNAM), regional contemporary art collections (FRAC), regional museums, and those of artists, private collectors and galleries, all essential partners to a project of this type.

Without claiming to be an exhaustive survey, this event will explore art across multiple disciplines and look at how they intersect, communicate and resonate, from painting to sculpture, music to film, photography to new technologies.
Beyond the exhibition itself, visitors can attend screenings, concerts, talks and performances developed with the different invited artists and commissioners.
