Art Paris Art Fair 202028/05/2020 - 31/05/2020
Art Paris, the leading spring event for modern and contemporary art, celebrates the French art scene and invites visitors to discover four dynamic cities: Barcelona, Lisbon, Madrid and Porto.
In the 20 years since its first edition, Art Paris has become Paris’s must-see spring fair for modern and contemporary art, once again bringing together more than 150 galleries from over 20 different countries with a total of almost 1,000 artists.
Combining leading names in the art world and astounding discoveries from all over Europe, not forgetting a cosmopolitan approach to African, Asian, Latin American and Middle Eastern art from the post-war period to the present day, Art Paris demonstrates a passion for art in all its forms, encouraged in this by fair director Guillaume Piens. In addition, Art Paris boasts a strong editorial line that asserts the fair’s identity as one that favours passion for art over speculation and which dares to tread new paths. Not only is Art Paris neither too big, nor too small, it is hosted in a magnificent setting, the Grand Palais.
After women artists and Latin America in 2019, this year Art Paris pays tribute to the rich and dynamic French art scene in a focus curated by Gaël Charbau and invites you to discover the buzzing art scenes of Southern Europe’s major cities (Barcelona, Lisbon, Madrid and Porto).
Art Paris will be held once again at the Grand Palais in 2020, before becoming the first art event to move into the ephemeral Grand Palais that will be installed on the Champ de Mars in 2021, while renovation work is carried out on the historic Parisian monument.
