From 27th to 30th March 2014, Art Paris Art Fair brings together some 140 galleries from 20 countries under the celestial dome of the Grand Palais, presenting a wide-ranging panorama of modern and contemporary art that includes photography, design and art publishing.
The selection of galleries for 2014 goes one step further towards confirming the event’s new identity adopted three years ago: a European fair that explores the countries of the East (Central Europe, Middle East and Asia.)
Following in the wake of last year’s invitation to Russia as guest of honour, a number of galleries have come from Asia. Although Art Paris Art Fair is becoming increasingly international (50% of foreign galleries this year compared to 43% in 2013), the fair remains committed to supporting those who constitute its foundations in Europe and France, where it remains deeply anchored.
In addition to China as guest of honour, Art Paris Art Fair presents several thematic sections that encourage discovery: Promises, devoted to young galleries, ArtDesign exploring contemporary design, Art Books Librairie Flammarion for art books and a space showcasing contemporary artistic binding.
A large number of events are also taking place - the ArtDesign Prize, the exhibition of the finalists of the Canson Prize for Art and Paper, a series of books signings and conferences, the VIP programme of visits - making Art Paris Art Fair 2014 the place to be this Spring.
