Brazilian performance artist Mauricio Ianès questions cultural policies at Palais de Tokyo, Paris

By Rosslyn Hyams

Being trilingual helps a performance artist from Brazil in his work, which questions cultural policies. And Mauricio Ianès is doing it in an exhibition at the part-public and part-privately funded Palais de Tokyo, in an exhibition called Des choses en plus, des choses en moins - (Something More, Something Less) - organised by the French National Centre for Visual Arts. Funnily enough, this artist plays on discretion to get himself noticed.
