Lily Reynaud-Dewar, “Hello, My Name is Lily and We Are Many” at Palais de Tokyo
Lili Reynaud-Dewar is a multidisciplinary artist who works in various fields such as filming, writing, speaking, dancing, teaching, and investigating. At the Palais de Tokyo, she raises questions about the role and function of artists. This profession is hard to define with blurred boundaries and is both privileged and precarious. Artists operate in a space between the exposure of their private life and the subjectification of public life.
