Galleries and their “Guests”

Galleries and their "Guests"
18 – 22 March, 2010

Grand Palais, Paris


From 18 – 22 March 2010 at the Grand Palais of Paris, the ARTPARIS+GUESTS modern and contemporary art fair will welcome some one hundred French and international galleries invited to exhibit on the basis of an original concept highlighting crossovers in art. “ARTPARIS+GUESTS is not just one more fair, it’s a spring-time art event that asserts the creative and cultural dynamics of Paris, with its own identity and an evolving concept opening the door to a new form of exhibit…,” points out Strategic Director Lorenzo Rudolf.

Galleries and their “Guests”

The most active and creative galleries on the international market are being asked to participate in ARTPARIS+GUESTS by forming associations with partners or “Guests” to create “an event within the event.” These “Guests” are being called upon to resonate with the approach of the participating galleries and with the works of the artists on exhibit.

Thus, some galleries are currently setting up an exhibition program linked with famous architects, designers, renowned chefs, writers, musicians, cinematographers, fashion creators… in order to establish parallels between different fields of creation and to reflect the transversality of artistic experiences.

Some other galleries are in touch with collectors, foundations, museums, contemporary art or antique galleries in France or abroad to showcase at ARTPARIS+GUESTS the best of modern and contemporary art.

With ARTPARIS+GUESTS, which emphasizes inventiveness and art crossovers, gallery owners and their partners will become, within the same space, the associated curators of an event which should attract a clientele of international collectors and stimulate the interest of new audiences.

Platforms and art without borders

ARTPARIS+GUESTS is also inviting its own guests on special platforms to show new trends of contemporary art through emerging art scenes from all over the world. These spaces closely connected with the influential actors of the art market such as collectors, foundations or curators are like windows opened on the cutting edge of contemporary art. One of the fair’s platforms will showcase the best of art in Indonesia.

The objective of ARTPARIS+GUESTS is to become an exchange platform underscoring the vitality of the art market and to develop in France a new art fair experience.

ARTPARIS+GUESTS is being organized by Lorenzo Rudolf, Caroline Clough Lacoste, and Henri Jobbé Duval, who have combined their expertise and knowledge of the market to bring this event to fruition.
