PARIS and HAMBURG, Germany, October 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
One-of-its-kind art show comes to the Palais de Tokyo
Paris' iconic venue for contemporary art and design, the Palais de Tokyo, this autumn plays host to the latest PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND concept event, 'Explore the Art of Imaging'. An exclusive artistic exhibition designed by Olympus, the Playground will run from October 28 to November 25 2015.
The Paris Playground creates unique visual and emotional experiences. It showcases works by forward-thinking international artists, from colourful to minimalistic, striking graphics to bold geometrics. Each piece expresses its creator's personal vision and perspective on what imaging is and how it should be experienced.
Visitors can explore INSIDEOUT, the dramatic 3D house by Leigh Sachwitz, the full-scale MAGIC KALEIDOSCOPE by A2arquitectos, and the mind-boggling optical effects of psychedelic installations by street artist Maser, among others. A number of performances are also scheduled during the Playground.
Carefully selected in consultation with the Palais de Tokyo, these works of art represent milestones in an emotional, multi-faceted visitor journey.
Olympus OM-D and PEN cameras are available to capture the magic of the art on show.
