Avoiding categorisation, French Connection aims to witness the dynamic nature of present day artistic and critical activity and present a portrait of the current state of the French art scene. The project began after art critics in France were asked which artists they would like to write about and which artists in their opinion best represented the current artistic situation. One text about an individual artist was commissioned per writer and each of the 88 selected artists has been allocated eight pages allowing for a (by no means exhaustive) introduction to their ideas. Artists featured include: Pierre Bismuth, Claude Closky, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Phillipe Parreno, Xavier Veilhan and Tatiana TrouvÃ©.
