Art Fair Paris: from art to capital
As the capital blossoms in the mild spring, you are still hesitating about the day’s programme? Look no further and run to the Grand Palais without delay. From April 4 to 7, treat yourself to a breath of modern and contemporary art under the large dome. The event is called Art Fair Paris. Its purpose? Open contemporary art to all.
Do you love contemporary art? Or on the contrary, does it reject you? Whether you are initiated or totally closed to the mysteries of this often misunderstood art, you will not remain indifferent to this gigantic international exhibition that focuses on artistic creation from the post-war period to the present day.
Art Fair Paris hosts more than 150 galleries of modern and contemporary art, half of which come from about twenty countries around the world. For this 21st edition, women artists in France are honoured through 25 projects selected by the AWARE association (Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions). Another highlight is the exhibition “Southern Stars: An Exploration of Latin American Art”, which presents a group of 60 artists from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela.
The ideal way to get the most out of this major international fair is to follow one of the 80 or so “decryption” visits organized with the Observatoire de l’art contemporain. A way of better understanding the works, the artists, but also the dialogue that is being established between European art and other world scenes. After that, you will no longer doubt the validity of the title “Paris, world capital of art”!
In spring, stay at the Appia La Fayette Hotel and dare to explore contemporary art!
