Premises: Invested Spaces in Visual Arts, Architecture & Design from France, 1958-1998 brings together more than 100 visual artists and architects working in France over the past 40 years. This catalogue explores the relationship between ideas about space and their physical manifestation in installation, film, video, photography, architecture and design. Its title plays on the two meanings of the term “premises”–postulates or arguments, site or built space–weaving them into a theme that encompasses all of the works reproduced. In addition to more familiar figures such as artists Christian Boltanski, Daniel Buren, Yves Klein and Annette Messager, architects Le Corbusier, Jean Nouvel and Renzo Piano, and designer Philippe Starck, Premises introduces a younger generation of French artists and architects, including Absalon, Thomas Hirschhorn, Pierre Huyghe, Patrick Berger, Frederic Boerl, Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal, who had not yet become widely known outside France at the time of publication.
