Art Paris Art Fair 2014 looks East

From 27th to 30th March 2014, some 140 international galleries from 20 countries will come together at the Grand Palais in Paris to present a wide-ranging panorama of modern and contemporary art, including photography, design and art publications.
The selection of galleries for 2014 goes one step further towards confirming the event's new identity and direction adopted three years ago: a European fair that explores Eastern lands (Central Europe, Middle East and Asia.)
Alongside the galleries that came as part of last year's invitation to Russia as guest of honour, a number of galleries are coming in response to the invitation of China this year. Several Asian galleries are also joining such as Hua Gallery (London), Adler Subhashok Gallery (Bangkok) and 313 Art Project (Seoul).
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 is deeply anchored. Among the new participants are Feizi (Brussels), Ditesheim & Maffei Fine Art (Neuchâtel), Alessandro Bagnai (Florence) as well as Mario Mauroner (Vienna) who returns to the fair this year. Among the French, Camera Obscura, Bertrand and Grimont are returning while others are coming for the first time, including Françoise Besson (Lyon), In Camera (Paris), Françoise Livinec (Paris) and in the design section, Jousse (Paris), Armel Soyer (Paris) and Galerie NeC nilsson et chiglien (Paris).

Celebrating 50 years Franco-Chinese relations: China guest of Honour
The invitation of China as guest of honour in 2014 comes as France and China celebrate their 50-year relationship.
With some 90 Chinese modern and contemporary artists represented, Art Paris Art Fair turns the spotlight on what is a rich and dynamic art scene. Different generations of artists will be shown by ten galleries that are coming from Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, as well as 20 or so Western galleries such as Paris-Beijing, Loft, Daniel Templon…
China Guest of Honour is supported by L'Officiel Art China

Thematic sections to encourage discovery

In addition to the guest of honour, Art Paris Art Fair presents several thematic sections that encourage discovery:

Promises  successfully launched in 2013, this section is devoted to young galleries (less than 5 years in existence) and the discovery of new talents. Twelve galleries from Beijing, Brussels, Geneva, London, New York, Paris and Saint Petersburg are taking part in the fair for the first time.

Artdesign  this platform explores the relationship between contemporary art and design. This is the 3rd edition. It brings together a dozen galleries who present unique or very limited editions of original works make by contemporary talents. New in 2014: the ArtDesignLab. Eight designers have been given carte blanche to undertake experimental research into what lies at the borderline between art and design.
The Artdesign platform is supported by IDEAT Magazine

Art Books Bookshop  in collaboration with the Art and Coffee Table section of the French national book publishers' union and Flammarion Bookshop in Paris, Art Paris Art Fair has dedicated a specific space for art and artists' books with some 30 publishers taking part. For the duration of the fair, artists, writers and art historians will sign their books and meet the public.
Alongside this, a special space has been designed to showcase art binding where a selection of outstanding contemporary bound works will be exhibited. The space is supported by the French fund for the development of illustrated books and original binding.

Fonds Canson®pour l'Art et le papier

The work of the five finalists of the 2014 Canson prize is showcased at Art Paris Art Fair. The prestigious jury for this prize is presided by YAN PEI MING, a French artist of Chinese descent. The prize is awarded in recognition an artist whose work demonstrates a special, intimate relationship with paper.

Springtime in Paris

The Chinese theme is also visible at the Musée des arts décoratifs with the exhibition « De la Chine aux Arts Décoratifs », as well as in the newly rearranged collections at the Centre Pompidou and the 'Modernités Plurielles' exhibition.
