Workplace Gallery: FIAC 2010 "Tuileries Gardens & Cinéphémère Projects"

Tuileries Gardens at FIAC
Louvre, Paris
21 - 24 October 2010

Darren Banks
Palace Band-Wagon : Mobile Cinema, 2010

Palace Band-Wagon  refers both to Darren Banks' interest in the decline of VHS and to the Ghanian "mobile cinemas" of the 1980's where local artists were commissioned to make promotional posters for the films without necessarily having seen them beforehand. Transforming a 1970 Cadillac Eldorado into a mobile cinema, Palace Band-Wagon presents a continuous show-reel of Banks' archive of Palace Pictures VHS. The public are invited to watch the video show-reel and add to the Palace Band-Wagon archive of promotional film posters.

For the fifth consecutive year, in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre, FIAC presents a program of outdoor projects in the Jardin des Tuileries. The growing interest for this annual event among galleries and artists - together with the exceptional beauty of the site - has enabled us to us to bring together over twenty seven projects, including sculptures, installations and ephemeral creations, deployed in the garden's fountains, basins, lawns, alleys and groves.
