Grand Palais, Avenue Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris

Modern + contemporary art + design
Russia Guest of Honour
Opening: 27th March 2013

The springtime event for modern and contemporary art in Paris
Held from 28th March to 1st April 2013, 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.

A fundamentally new selection
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 (43% of exhibitors are coming from outside France). 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 focussing on the art scenes of the East – from Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Russia Guest of Honour
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.

Promises: a new section for young galleries
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:
16th Line (Rostov on Don), Leonardi Agosti (Sète), Backslash (Paris), Duplex 10m2 (Sarajevo), Edward Cutler (Milan), Lam Art Gallery (Riyadh), Lehr Zeitgenőssische Kunst (Cologne), NK Gallery (Antwerp), de Roussan (Paris), Vincent Sator (Paris), Trinity Contemporary (London), XPO Gallery (Paris).
‘Promises’ is supported by l’Officiel Art

Artdesign platform: exploring the relationship between art and contemporary design.
Dedicated to the exploration of the links between design and contemporary art, the Artdesign platform brings together a cutting-edge selection of eight galleries which present exclusive pieces produced in a confidential mode by contemporary talents. 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)….
The Artdesign platform is supported by IDEAT Magazine
