The PARTY is an event-driven device that plays with relationships between art works and the art world, in questioning the gallery as place and material of the meeting with the public. This device attempts to release conditions of the relationship to art work by providing an experience based more on exchange and expression than on contemplative meditation. Recalling derision of Blake Edwards film, the gallery changes its face at each new event, offering then new understanding of this place institutional, either as place of celebration, or as place of the speech, either as space of mediatization, consumption or creation of the work of art. Between irony and poetry, each of the seven episodes of "The Party", invites the visitor to become user of the gallery and the viewer of the work to be an actor of the event.
