The Leading Spring Event for Modern and Contemporary Art
Art Paris will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2023. The fair will run from 30 March to 2 April 2023 at the Temporary Grand Palais Éphémère, bringing together 130 modern and contemporary art galleries from some 20 countries. Thanks to its sectors ”Solo Show” and “Promises” (dedicated to young galleries) Art Paris promotes discovery and re-discovery , not to mention its themes led by guest curators who contribute to the originality of this leading spring event in Paris.
”Solo Show”: in favour of monographic exhibitions
Art Paris encourages the presentation of monographic exhibitions spread throughout the fair. These solo shows allow visitors to discover or rediscover in depth the work of modern, contemporary, or emerging artists. The „Solo Show“ sector is specifically highlighted in the fair’s communication and promotional materials.
“Promises”: supporting young galleries and emerging artists
“Promises”, a sector focusing on young galleries created less than six years ago, provides a forward-looking analysis of cutting-edge contemporary art. Participating galleries may present up to three emerging artists and the fair finances 45% of their exhibitor fees.
Art Paris: the first art fair to implement a sustainable approach
Art Paris is an art fair with a regional focus that gives pride of place to proximity and local sustainable solutions, especially in terms of transport and visitor management. In what was a first for an art fair, Art Paris 2022 made a commitment to developing a sustainable approach to its organisation based on a life cycle assessment (LCA). This pioneering approach made possible thanks to the help of Karbone Prod, in collaboration with environmental consultants Solinnen, will be renewed in 2023.
Paris: „the place to be!“
Paris is in the midst of an exceptional period of cultural and artistic renaissance illustrated by the opening of new galleries and venues, the renovation of existing cultural institutions and the inauguration of new ones. More than ever, the City of Light is asserting its role as “the place to be” for contemporary art. The activities on offer as part of the VIP programme, reserved for collectors and art professionals bear witness to the transformation of Paris’s art scene.
Because of his origins, Marc Chagall intensely felt the problems of the Jewish community in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century, just as he intuitively experienced the problems that Russia, his native country, was going through with the First World War and the October Revolution.
Driven by fascination as well as by contempt, Stéphane Mandelbaum (1961–1986) produced hundreds of portraits within a short creative period of just ten years. The subjects include Arthur Rimbaud, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Francis Bacon, Pierre Goldman, his grandfather Szulim, and his father Arié Mandelbaum, but also National Socialist criminals such as Joseph Goebbels and Ernst Röhm.
Cultural exchange and cooperation are important parts of the comprehensive Sino-European strategic partnership. They play an irreplaceable role in enhancing mutual understanding between people and promoting the value of our relations. At the 14th Sino-European Summit in 2011, the leaders stressed that cultural exchange is one of the three pillars of Sino-European relations.
Chagall is one of the most famous artists in France in the 20th century. His work has characteristics of surrealism and neo-primitivism.
Chagall was born on 7 July 1887 in Russia, in a Jewish family. He was brought up in the peace and tenderness of his mother, who taught him to read and to love the Bible and people. Vitebsk remained in Chagall’s imagination as the naive paradise of childhood, and the painter represented it in many paintings, in his youth and also later.
