Palais de Tokyo and Orange

Imagined by Palais de Tokyo and Orange, the PUSHYOURART competition is a product of their shared desire to encourage the integration of new technology into the process of artistic creation.

Palais de Tokyo

Palais de Tokyo

Palais de Tokyo, created ten years ago, has revived Paris with its effervescence, cheerfulness and sense of adventure. This unconventional and ambitious 'palace', an anti-museum par excellence, is a gathering place for progressive artists in the 16th arrondissement, and a place for exchange and surprise. It has been the pioneer of a reconciliation movement between the city of Paris and contemporary art. Its model, and consequently its program, has acquired a following that extends far beyond the French borders, as much among specialists as among amateurs.

Benefiting from these years of success, in 2012 Palais de Tokyo became one of the largest sites in Europe for contemporary creation, with the size of its premises growing from 8,000m2 to 22,000m2. Its successful reopening, its spirit of adventure, and its new spaces made available to artists and their works, have increased our capacity to perceive, to imagine and to open up new paths.

Today, the extension of its premises and its project gives Palais de Tokyo the opportunity to rethink the role of the cultural institution in the face of the constantly accelerating nature of our lives. It is becoming the place to discover the art of our day. A place where you don't work on art, but with art, and where we can be transformed by it.

Orange

Orange

Orange, a digital partner of culture, reinforces its commitment by supporting young artists in 3D creation.

For years, Orange has been implementing projects that combine culture and technological innovation. Through its capacity to provide digital services for cultural uses and to promote new uses, Orange is committed to developing artistic creations that make use of technological competences. Orange thus invests in creation by putting the artists in contact with the researchers at the Orange Labs, with a certainty that the artistic activity is a powerful lever through which to understand the challenges, and anticipate tomorrow's technologies and uses. This year, Orange is giving artists the opportunity to explore the creative potential of 3D relief, allowing the public to discover a new side to this technology.

Orange, a founding partner of the new Palais de Tokyo, has collaborated with the museum to create this competition, reinforcing its position as a major partner of prestigious institutions; such as the Château de Versailles, the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine, the Quai Branly museum, the future Louvre in Lens, and Marseille Provence 2013.
