Marc-Olivier Wahler, the outgoing director of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, plans to open temporary art centres in Los Angeles and Paris in spring 2012 after his six-year tenure ends in January. Chalet Hollywood will open at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) and Chalet Society will open on Boulevard Raspail on Paris’s Left Bank.

“The name is intended to play with the idea of branding, identity and image,” says the 47-year-old Swiss curator. The Palais de Tokyo has previously organised exhibitions and artist projects under the name Les Chalets de Tokyo in Buenos Aires, Roswell in New Mexico, Edinburgh, Seoul, New York and Coimbra in Portugal, with the aim of developing its programme abroad.

Wahler's new projects are a continuation of this initiative. “My idea is to reflect on whether an art centre is the best structure for showing art and as a place of production. Chalet Society and Chalet Hollywood will be a laboratory to test this hypothesis for the benefit of young artists, and [to examine] how to use and share knowledge.”
