Art Paris 2020, the modern and contemporary art fair, is reborn at the Grand Palais from September 10 to 13. It will be the first major cultural event in Europe in 6 months.
The 2020 selection, which brings together some 112 galleries from 15 different countries is also marked by the arrival of new participants such as Perrotin, Yvon Lambert, Templon, Jeanne Bucher Jaeger, Gilles Drouault, galerie/multiples, Alain Gutharc or Jean-François Cazeau. A prominent place has also been reserved for a young generation of talented gallerists whose presence bears witness to Art Paris’s vocation as discoverer of talent.
This 22nd edition features two main themes. In the first, guest curator Gaël Charbau has selected 18 artists as part of a subjective and critical overview of the French art scene that is based around the notion of narrative and the juxtaposition of unique and universal stories. The second theme explores the Iberian Peninsula, showcasing Spanish and Portuguese art from the 1950s to the present day.
Art Paris encourages the presentation of monographic exhibitions with twenty-one solo shows this year, while also supporting young galleries and emerging artists in the “Promises” sector that this year features 14 galleries from Abidjan, Brussels, Lima, Lisbon, Sofia, Marseille and Paris.
