PARIS.- For its fifth year, the fair is assembled by nearly 80 European galleries, including around 10 in the new area highlighting young artists – DRAWING NOW I LA MEZZANINE.

At the centre of the fair, Pierre Cornette de St Cyr will unveil his contemporary drawing "Museum without Walls".

For the first time, DRAWING NOW I NUMERIQUE will explore every dimension of contemporary drawing with a specialist program of contemporary drawing.

Over four days in the heart of Paris, collectors, curators and art lovers are invited to (re)discover the contemporary art scene through contemporary drawings by recognized and emerging artists

For its fifth year, the Salon du Dessin Contemporain is becoming DRAWING NOW PARIS. This Anglicism is not an affectation, but a way of clearly indicating the fair’s international dimension.

Nearly 30% of galleries are European this year, and more specifically German, Swiss and Belgian.

The first European fair exclusively dedicated to contemporary drawing, DRAWING NOW PARIS is a forum for exchange between every generation of artists represented by the exhibiting galleries.

That is why we felt it important to open a new space, DRAWING NOW I LA MEZZANINE dedicated to young galleries (less than three years old) presenting an artist aged under 35.

Contemporary drawing is a means of expression combining graphic arts with new technologies, allowing a comparison between all today’s different drawing styles.

DRAWING NOW I NUMERIQUE will also present a collection of digital drawings to provide a better understanding of this discipline so full of potential discoveries.

A meeting place for in-the-know collectors who can acquire rare works by recognized artists whose drawings are hardly presented anywhere else. A place of discovery for young collectors who can finally access original pieces by emerging artists!

A place for quality networking between gallery owners, artists, collectors, institutions and contemporary art lovers, in a few years this fair has established itself as a key event in the contemporary art calendar.

DRAWING NOW PARIS I LE SALON DU DESSIN CONTEMPORAIN will reveal the full range of contemporary drawing from 80 European galleries at the Carrousel du Louvre, from 25th to 28th March 2011.
