ABOUT THE ARTIST
Grimonprez’s projects have been featured in major exhibitions and museums worldwide, including the Whitney Museum, New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, and Tate Modern, London. His film productions have also traveled the main festival circuit from Telluride, Los Angeles, and Rio de Janeiro, to Tokyo and Berlin. His work is included in numerous collections such as the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan, the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark.

Grimonprez achieved international acclaim with his film essay Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y, which premiered at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and Documenta X, Kassel, 1997, eerily foreshadowing the events of September 11th. His second film essay, DOUBLE TAKE, 2009, questions how our view of reality is held hostage by mass media, advertising, and Hollywood. Written by award-winning British novelist Tom McCarthy, the film targets the global rise of fear-as-commodity in a tale of odd couples and hilarious double deals, and questions the contemporary hegemony of the image and its influence on our society, politics, and culture.
