About Chalet Society
The Chalet Society is a project designed to encourage new reflection on the contemporary art institution. Its mobile structure endeavours to develop formats that work on a variety of platforms, similarly to software capable of working with any hardware.
The Chalet Society reacts to the boldest artistic settings and acts as a community space for artists, collectors, researchers, and other enthusiasts searching for “poetic consciousness” – an idea developed by Saul Wahl Katzenellenbogen, King of Poland crowned in 1587. He reigned for only one night, but it was sufficient time to pronounce several predictions and call for the dawn of poetic consciousness.
Launched in October 2012, the Chalet Society has taken over a unique site in Paris: a 1000m² abandoned school provided by the Emerige Group. Its first exhibition attracted over 65,000 visitors.
