about Charlemagne Palestine

Charlemagne Palestine works from a highly personal universe of ritual, intoxication, and shamanism. Over the last four decades the artist has created an extensive body of experimental musical compositions, bodily performances, and, in later years, visual artworks inhabited by stuffed animals. To Palestine, teddy bears figure as powerful shamanic totems, which he fondly calls “divinities.”

Palestine has collaborated with an extensive roster of poets, visual artists, and choreographers including experimental filmmaker Tony Conrad and performer and choreographer Simone Forti. His work has been exhibited at countless museums and other institutions, including Bozar, Brussels; Gavin Brown’s enterprise, Rome; Jewish Museum, New York; Kunsthalle Vienna and MoMA, New York.
