Art Paris Art Fair 2013
28.03.2013 – 01.04.2013, Grand Palais, Paris

Art Paris Art Fair brings together 140 galleries from 21 countries under the majestic roof of the Grand Palais. The fair presents a wide range of modern and contemporary works and is open to all forms of artistic practice including contemporary design. A series of talks and a VIP programme for collectors entitled ‘Springtime in Paris’ will focus on the best of contemporary art and contribute to highlight the role of Paris a one of Europe’s leading capitals for art.

The 2013 selection will bring a very high proportion of new galleries (61 new arrivals this year) and one of the highest levels of foreign participants. Bosnia, Finland, Russia (with a major representation of 11 galleries), Saudi Arabia, Slovenia and The United Arab Emirates are making their first appearance at the fair. Art Paris Art Fair is reinforcing its unique identity not only by showcasing both the diversity and the specificity of the artistic scenes from all around Europe, but also by focusing on the art scenes of the East – from Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia. For the first time Art Paris Art Fair is inviting a country as guest of honour. This year it is Russia. A central platform hosts eleven galleries from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Rostov-on-don, and Vladivostok, while 15 or so European galleries are presenting work by their Russian artists. Showcasing work by some 90 artists, Art Paris Fair will offer an exceptional panorama of Russian art: from the Russian émigrés of the 1930s to the non-conformist movements of the Soviet period through to the most contemporary production.

Art Paris Art Fair launches a new section called Promises devoted to the promotion of recent galleries that have been established for less than five years. Twelve galleries make up the 2013 selection to encourage the discovery of new talent. On show there will notably be sculpture-objects by Hubert le Gall (Mazel Galerie), recent creation by Matali Crasset (Domeau et Pérès and Slott Gallery), unique pieces by Mattia Bonetti (Cat-Berro Gallery), jewellery made by artists and designers (Galerie MiniMasterpiece), and many more.
