For Midnight Moment, filmmaker and installation artist Isaac Julien creates a three-minute visual impression of the full-length film “Playtime”.
The video explores current debates on the relationships between capital, the art world, and the individual. The full film installation is on view in at Metro Pictures through December 14.
Guest: Sherry Dobbin, Director of Times Square Arts.
Every night in Times Square. 11.57pm to midnight, until 30 December 2013.
Philippe Parreno, one of the most original figures of the international art world, has radically transformed the monumental space of the Palais de Tokyo. In response to its carte blanche invitation, Parreno has devised an exhibition driven by his dialogue with architecture and with the notion of the exhibition as a medium in its own right.
“Anywhere, Anywhere out of the World” celebrates an artist whose works, ideas, and approach exercise considerable influence and have irrefutably reshaped our idea of art.
Guest: Jean de Loisy, President, Palais de Tokyo and co-curator of the exhibition.
Until 12 January 2014

Manu Dibango : l’infatigable musicien de jazz
FRL s’est entretenu avec l’artiste qui nous parle de son parcours et de son prochain concert à Londres
Originaire du Cameroun, Manu Dibango est un saxophoniste et vibraphoniste. Il a développé un style musical qui lui est particulier mélangeant jazz, funk et musique traditionnelle camerounaise et d’autres pays de l’Afrique francophone.
Parti étudier à Paris très jeune, il y découvre le jazz en écoutant la radio et en allant dans les églises protestantes. En 1972, il sort Soul Makossa qui le rend célèbre et qui marque un tournant historique. En effet, c’est la première fois aux Etats-Unis qu’un Africain se place en tête des classements musicaux.
A presque 80 ans, il a déjà près de 20 albums derrière lui. A l’occasion de son anniversaire, il sort un mémoire Dans les Coulisses de ma Vie et un nouvel album Balade en Saxo.
Un concert londonien
Il sera en concert au Barbican Center le 26 novembre prochain. Ce n’est pas la première fois qu’il vient à Londres, il y a déjà joué en compagnie de musiciens jamaïquains, cubains et notamment avec le trompettiste Hugh Masekela.
Connu pour préparer ses morceaux au dernier moment selon le lieu et son humeur, les concerts de Manu Dibango surprennent et ne déçoivent jamais.
Notre journaliste Maïa Morgensztern s’est entretenue avec ce musicien de jazz mythique qui nous parle de sa carrière, de son nouvel album et de son concert à Londres.

Exclusive interview with Stromae, tonight on Culture FRL
It’s the best Belgian story.
It’s the story of a boy who wrote and arranged “Cheese” in his bedroom, creating a first album that sold more than 200 000 copies in the world – platinum in France.
It’s the story of the man behind the emblematic “Te Quiero” or “Alors On Danse” tracks, which sold more than 3 million copies and made gold and platinum in 15 countries.
Today, the story continues with a new chapter. His last lessons “Human Overboard” and “They are all the same” rings the alarm; Stromae is back. Since then, the buzz didn’t stop growing: the video for “Formidable” drives the Internet crazy and reaches a 4 million views in only 4 days, while the track “Papaoutai” sets itself as the summer hit. Those titles are included in his latest “Racine Carrée”. He puts his unique recipe into practice more than ever: set down words on heady beats.
Who said the shortest stories are the best?
Guest: Stromae, musician, singer-songwriter.

Elmgreen & Dragset “Tomorrow”
Occupying the V&A’s former Textiles galleries, Tomorrow is an immersive installation which invites you to snoop around the home of fictional architect Norman Swann, piecing together his life and personality from choreographed details scattered throughout a grand but decaying apartment.
A script - available for free within the exhibition - adds narrative flesh to the bones of rooms and objects, which together form a set for an as-yet-unrealised film.
The duo Elmgreen & Dragset gives an Exclusive interview to Culture FRL in Normann Swann’s lavish living room.
Guests: Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, artists (in English)
"Tomorrow" is at the V&A until 2 January, 2014
