Favouring a thematic approach and open to all mediums, the 21st edition of international fair Art Paris will bring together 150 modern and contemporary art galleries under the majestic glass roof of the Grand Palais.
Focusing on a regional exploration of European art from the post-war years to the present day, the fair also places special emphasis on the new horizons of international creation, whether from Asia, Africa, the Middle East or Latin America.
A Gaze at Women Artists in France
Curated by AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions, this year’s event presents a critical and subjective overview of the work of women artists in France, from the post-war period to the present day, with 25 projects selected from amongst the exhibits of participating galleries. This selection is divided into four themes: Abstraction, the Feminist Avant-Garde, Image, and Theatricality. AWARE was founded in 2014 by art historian Camille Morineau, and aims to produce, index and distribute information about 20th century women artists.
Southern Stars: An Exploration of Latin American Art
Art historian and independent exhibition curator Valentina Locatelli will be in charge of a focus on Latin America, which highlights the specific identity and diversity of Latin American art from the 1960s to the present day with a selection of galleries and artists, and special additional projects such as the presentation of a private collection and conferences at the Maison de l’Amérique latine to highlight the creative effervescence that reigns on the continent.
Art Paris runs from 4 – 7 April at Grand Palais, Paris, France. For further information, visit the fair’s website here.
