Art Paris Art Fair 2018
Art Paris Art Fair 2018
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Art Paris Art Fair. Since its foundation in 1999, the fair has established itself as Paris' leading modern and contemporary spring Art event. The 2018 edition will last from March 30 to April 2 and host 142 galleries presenting more than 990 artists from 73 countries providing an overview of European art from the post-war years to the current day, while leaving room for the new horizons of international creation from Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. For an amazing stay in Paris we offer you the most elegant Luxury Apartments that we have distributed throughout the city so you can enjoy comfort, design and security that BE APARTMENT provides you.
Open to all forms of artistic expression, including video art and design, Art Paris Art Fair offers a theme-based approach focusing on discovery and rediscovery. This year's guest country is Switzerland and the fair will also be taking a close look at the French art scene with a new theme developed especially for the 20th anniversary as well as the usual monographic exhibitions in Solo Show and emerging artists in Promesses. Art Paris Art Fair has gained its reputation by exploring foreign art scenes. The prolific and diverse Swiss art scene, with its taste for all things minimal and offbeat sense of humour, is like the country itself, lying at the crossroads of different European traditions and cultures.
The Promises sector of Art Paris Art Fair will also host 12 young galleries with less than 6 years of existence, which may present up to 3 emerging artists each. The "L'art est vivant: Promesses" prize rewards a young talent represented by one of the Promises sector galleries at a key moment in his/her career.
Moreover, ever since 2015, Art Paris Art Fair has been encouraging the presentation of one-person exhibitions spread throughout the fair. The 2018 edition features an unprecedented number of 35 solo shows. This monographic exhibition offers a special moment in an artist's career because it helps to develop a better understanding of his/her work and, in so doing, develops the artist's reputation.
Art Paris Art Fair is dedicated to making contemporary art accessible to the widest audience, offering some 80 guided tours of the Fair as well as a number of specific tools, in particular its elaborate yet eminently practical website. It presents a virtual visit of the Art Fair and filters allowing visitors to search for works by artist, price, geographical provenance and technique. Flyers for each gallery, providing information on the works, are available on location as a way to navigate the Art Paris Art Fair. If you´ve decided to spend few days in the city you can always stay in our Luxury Apartments by BE APARTMENT in the centre of Paris, the best in the city of love and glamour.
