Pierre Huyghe's film/live project follows a group of actors through a series of fragmented narratives, improvised scenes, and fantastical visions within Paris' Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires.

Pierre Huyghe's project The Host and the Cloud took place at the Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires in Paris (2009-2010). A group of actors, acting under a set of fictive conditions or parameters, interacted in this setting over a longer period of time. Their roles and behaviour changed as they encountered a collection of live situations, displays and fragmented narratives. The project was witnessed by fifty guests on Halloween, Valentine's Day, and May Day.

The screening will be preceded by an introduction by art historian Tom McDonough.

The Host and the Cloud is presented courtesy of the artist and Marian Goodman Gallery, New York.
