Boosted by the success of the September 2021 edition that inaugurated the Grand Palais Ephémère on the Champ-de-Mars with a record-breaking 72,745 visitors, Art Paris is back from April 7 to 10, 2022 with a strong selection of 130 modern and contemporary galleries from some twenty different countries.

The high-level 2022 selection reflects the growing momentum of this major spring event for modern and contemporary art.

Both regional and cosmopolitan, this 24th edition counts 30 percent new exhibitors. Returning heavyweights Continua, Lelong & Co., massimodecarlo, kamel mennour and Perrotin are joined by Max Hetzler (Berlin, Paris, London) and Bernier Eliades (Athens, Brussels). As far as French galleries are concerned, gb agency, Christophe Gaillard, Catherine Issert, Pietro Sparta, Praz-Delavallade and denise rené will be exhibiting for the first time at Art Paris alongside international newcomers such as Fernando Pradilla (Madrid), Rodolphe Janssen (Brussels) and Xippas (Brussels, Geneva, Montevideo, Paris, Punta del Este).

This edition also sees the arrival of Brame Lorenceau, Galerie des Modernes and Galerie Jacques Bailly who will be enhancing the modern art offer.

The African art scene takes root at the fair with 1957 Gallery (Ghana), Loft Art Gallery (Morocco) and Véronique Rieffel (Ivory Coast), who are joined by Parisian galleries 31 Project, Magnin-A, Templon, Anne de Villepoix and Carole Kvasnevski. The latter will be devoting its stand to South African artist Zanele Muholi.

Focusing on discovering and rediscovering artists, Art Paris puts the spotlight on independent and emerging galleries such as Backslash, Félix Frachon, Ibasho, Eric Linard, Irène Laub and Oniris.art, which will all be joining the fair in 2022. Art Paris also encourages the presentation of monographic exhibitions, whilst supporting young galleries and emerging artists in the “Promises” sector that brings together around ten exhibitors.

A strong commitment to the environment with two themes—Natural Histories and Art & Environment—combined with an innovative and sustainable approach to organising an art fair.

Natural Histories: A Focus on the French Scene by Alfred Pacquement
Since 2018, Art Paris has consistently supported the French contemporary art scene by inviting curators to lend a subjective, historical, and critical eye on a selection of specific projects by French artists presented by participating galleries. With Natural Histories, a focus on the French scene, independent exhibition curator Alfred Pacquement will share his perspective on the French scene with a selection of 20 artists from different generations, whilst considering the way in which these artists see the natural world and how plants and animals have once again found their place in the contemporary aesthetic.

Art & Environment by Alice Audouin
Independent exhibitor curator, environmental specialist and Art of Change 21 founder Alice Audouin, will orchestrate a selection of seventeen French and international artists  (selected from amongst the exhibiting galleries), whose work tackles environmental issues such as global warming and the loss of biodiversity.

Art Paris adopts a sustainable approach that’s a first in the world of art fairs. Organised by France Conventions, it is a regional art fair that gives pride of place to proximity, drawing local visitors and favouring local transport solutions. In 2022, the fair commits to developing an environmentally responsible approach to organising an art fair.

Karbone Prod, founded by Fanny Le Gros, will join forces with environmental consultants Solinnen and Art of Change 21 to assist Art Paris with the implementation of a life cycle assessment-based sustainable approach in what will be a first for an art fair.

This pioneering initiative is supported by French environmental agency ADEME. In the longer term, the aim is to develop a tool for designing environmentally friendly art fairs.

“Solo Show”: seventeen monographic exhibitions
Seventeen solo shows spread throughout the fair allow visitors to discover or rediscover in depth the work of modern, contemporary, or emerging artists, with the support of The Wall Street Journal.

“Promises”: a sector supporting young galleries and emerging artists
“Promises”, a sector focusing on young galleries created less than six years ago, provides a forward-looking analysis of cutting-edge contemporary art. In 2022, this sector will play host to nine galleries around half of which are new for this edition.

Paris is in the midst of an exceptional period of cultural and artistic renaissance illustrated by the opening of new galleries and venues, the renovation of existing cultural institutions and the inauguration of new ones. More than ever before, the City of Light is asserting its role as the place to be for contemporary art. The activities on offer as part of the VIP programme, reserved for collectors and art professionals (by invitation only), bear witness to the transformation of Paris’s art scene, whilst showcasing the sustainable initiatives of its cultural stakeholders.
