Ugo Rondinone Shows John Giorno Love at Palais de Tokyo

By Alexis Thrower

October 21, 2015

Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s “I ♥ John Giorno,” at Palais de Tokyo opens today, and comprises years of work by American poet John Giorno. Although influential to the American underground scene of the 1960s, this is the first time there has been an exhibit based on his life and work in Paris. Along with working with the likes of Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg and being a part of the Beat Generation, Giorno generated ways to share and make poetry accessible to everyone. In 1968 he created “Dial-a Poem” a telephone service that allowed access to poems, sound artworks, songs and political speeches. A new modern version of that will be accessible until January 10, where you can discover poetry dating back to 1915.

Rondinone set out to create an exhibit that explores the influences of culture and religion on Giorno’s work, as well as his influences on other artists. The exhibition combines poetry, visual arts, music and performance, structured in eight chapters, each representing a layer of Giorno’s work.
