Publications

Monographic editions

The editorial policy of the Grand Café extends the accompanying work of the artists who performed a solo show at the art center. True monographs and no exhibition catalogues, the publications document the practice of artists and offer critical texts on their approach. Each edition is an opportunity to develop a different proposal, conducted in close collaboration with the artist.
Systematically co-published with other structures, these editions are often occasion of a first edition in French for international artists or first publication for emerging artists and offer a better visibility and dissemination of their projects.
