In billiards terminology, Carambolages is the French word for Carom or Cannon: ‘Carom generally refers to any type of strike and rebound.’ This is the notion behind the Grand Palais’ newest exhibition: to reinterpret and represent art in a completely unlikely way – using amusement as the central concept. A total of 185 artworks from different styles, periods and countries have been chosen based on their oddity and on the visual impact they each have. The exhibit showcases the works of Giacometti, Rembrandt, Man Ray, Annette Messager, etc., while the layout follows the pattern of a game of dominoes, inviting the audience to rediscover these artists through a playful experience.
📅 March 2nd – July 4th, 2016, open Monday – Sunday, 10am – 8pm (closed Tuesdays)
