The Parc de La Villette presents
Bêtes et Hommes - (Beasts and Men)
An exhibition event in Paris at the Grande Halle de la Villette from September 12, 2007 to January 20, 2008

The Grande Halle is reopening after two years of renovations, and its putting on "Bêtes et Hommes" to celebrate. The show is reminiscent of such other large-scale exhibitions as "Cités Cinés" and "Jardin Planétaire," which helped make La Villette the beloved destination it is today.
The astonishing “Bêtes et Hommes” extends over 3500m2, exploring the relationship between humans and animals in today’s world.

The presence of performance, video, installation and site-specific work within the visual arts is raising critical questions about the resonance, collectability, legacy and sustainability of such ephemeral works."
