Art Paris: an identity all of its own
An international art fair that focuses on a regional exploration of European art from the post-war years to the present day, Art Paris places special emphasis on the new horizons of international creation. Favouring a thematic approach and open to all mediums, from April 4–7, 2019 the 21st edition of the fair will bring together 145 modern and contemporary art galleries at the Grand Palais.
A Gaze at Women Artists in France
Curated by AWARE, the 2019 edition presents an overview of the work of women artists in France, from the post-war period to the present day. 20 specific projects by women artists will be selected from amongst the exhibits of participating galleries and AWARE will release a statement on this topic. Each of the 20 selected projects will be specifically highlighted in the fair’s promotional material.
Southern Stars: Bogota, Buenos Aires, Lima and Mexico City
The 2019 edition will present a survey of the new, effervescent and highly stimulating artistic environment of four major Latin-American capitals: Bogota, Buenos Aires, Lima and Mexico City, each of which has managed to preserve its own identity, whilst maintaining numerous contacts with the other capitals.
Art historian and independent exhibition curator Valentina Locatelli will be in charge of this focus, which will highlight the specific identity and diversity of these four cities with a selection of galleries and artists. Special additional projects, such as a video programme, conferences and the production of monumental wall art, aim to provide a new perspective on Latin American art today.
Solo Show: encouraging monographic exhibitions
Monographic exhibitions are a special moment in an artist’s career. They help develop a better awareness of their work and, in so doing, add to their reputation. Ever since 2015, Art Paris has been encouraging the presence of solo shows, which are spread throughout the fair.
“Promises”: supporting young galleries and emerging artists
“Promises” is a section located in the central part of the Grand Palais that plays host to 14 galleries with less than six years of existence. The participating galleries may present no more than three emerging artists. The fair finances 45% of the galleries’ participation costs.
Paris, more than ever an art world capital
With the opening of private foundations, bold new architecture, dynamic institutions and an active art market, Paris is more than ever a world art capital and a place to be. The fair’s special VIP programme, “Springtime in Paris”, illustrates the effervescence of the Parisian art scene this spring, whilst highlighting the Latin American presence in France.
