Issue 22 of Palais magazine is entirely devoted to Ugo Rondinone's exhibition “I Love John Giorno” at the Palais de Tokyo, the first retrospective of the life and work of the American poet John Giorno, a key figure of America's counterculture since the 1960s. An iconic character in Andy Warhol's early films, Giorno was influenced by Pop artists who opened his eyes to the idea of “found poetry,” and he captured the real-life colloquial language of advertisements, television, newspapers, and street slang. Seeking to create a new audience and a new relevance for poetry since the mid-1960s, Giorno has developed viral strategies to share poetry with as many people as possible.
