Art Paris Art Fair : 20 years
From April 5th to 8th, 2018, Art Paris Art Fair is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Since its foundation in 1999, the fair has become the leading springtime event for modern and contemporary art in Paris. With 142 galleries from 23 different countries, the 2018 edition explores European art from the post-war period to the present day while emphasising the new horizons of international creation from Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

An overview of the French art scene
True to its original vocation to support the French art scene, Art Paris Art Fair has asked guest curator François Piron to make a selection of projects highlighting 20 artists in France who both in the past and today, have managed to preserve their independence from dominant trends, remaining on the margin of the mainstream Art History.
Monographic exhibitions will feature notably Geneviève Asse (Galerie Oniris), Blek le Rat (Galerie Ange Basso), Leonardo Cremonini (Galerie T&L), Hervé Di Rosa (AD Galerie), Vincent Gicquel (Galerie Thomas Bernard- Cortex Athletico), Hessie (Galerie Arnaud Lefebvre), Jean-Pierre Raynaud (Galerie Caroline Smulders).

Guest of honour: Switzerland
The prolific and diverse Swiss art scene, with its taste for all things minimal and off-beat sense of humour, is like the country itself lying at the crossroads of different European traditions and cultures. Art historian and exhibition curator Karine Tissot has been entrusted with the Switzerland guest of honour invitation. This spotlight will endeavour to promote the wealth and diversity of the Swiss scene with some 100 modern, contemporary and emerging artists represented both by Swiss and Euopean galleries, a programme of videos projected on the façade of the Grand Palais and in the Project Room, site specific projects, not forgetting a presentation of the Helvetia Art Collection focussing on young talents little known in France.
The Switzerland guest of honour invitation benefits from the support of the Swiss Embassy in France.
The video programme is supported by Vidélio

Solo Show: encouraging monographic exhibitions

A monographic exhibition offers a special moment in an artist's career as it helps develop a better understanding of his work and, in so doing, adds to his recognition. Ever since 2015, Art Paris Art Fair has been encouraging the presentation of personal exhibitions spread throughout the fair. The 2018 edition features an unprecedented number of 33 solo shows by international artists such as Todd Hiddo (Galerie Particulière), Kengo Kuma (Galerie Philippe Gravier), Grégoire Müller (Grob Gallery), Steve Sabella (Contemporary Art Platform Kuwait)...
Solo Show is supported by Barnebys
