Solo exhibitions

A monographic exhibition offers a special moment in an artist’s career because it helps to develop a better understanding of his/her work and, in so doing, develops the artist’s reputation. Ever since 2015, Art Paris Art Fair has been encouraging the presentation of one-person exhibitions spread throughout the fair. Here are a selection from the 2018 edition which features an unprecedented number of 36 solo shows of international artists.

 

Alexandre Hollan, Vie Silencieuse, 2014 / Galerie La Forest Divonne

MAKING CONTEMPORARY ART ACCESSIBLE TO ALL

Art Paris Art Fair is dedicated to making contemporary art accessible to the widest audience, offering some 80 guided tours of the Fair as well as a number of specific tools, in particular its elaborate yet eminently practical website. It presents a virtual visit of the Fair and filters allowing visitors to search for works by artist, price, geographical provenance and technique. Flyers for each gallery, providing information on the works, are available on location as a way to navigate the Fair.
