For its 7th edition, artgenève
extends its artistic proposal by inviting the PAD, including Decorative Arts, Historical and Contemporary Design.
Over the course of 6 years of continued development and consolidation, artgenève has taken root in the Geneva Lake region, establishing itself as a high end and internationally renowned contemporary and modern art fair. The fair now wishes to enrich its artistic offering with the inclusion of Historic, Modern and Contemporary Design, and Tribal Art. The famous PAD, established 21 years ago in Paris in the Tuileries and expanded to Berkeley Square in London 11 years ago, will bring together carefully selected galleries.
Thomas Hug and Laura Meillet, directors of artgenève and artmonte-carlo fairs, and Patrick Perrin, founder of the PAD, are motivated by the same vision of a quality fair on a human scale, at a time when the concept of major art fairs is constantly being rethought and redesigned.
"We are pleased to announce today this first-ever European and international partnership, the first edition of which will take place from 1 to 4 February 2018. The PAD will not be outdoors but will be integrated in the halls of Palexpo next to artgenève."
The PAD Geneva 2018 will bring together a selection of merchants from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and France. An international reputation that underscores the ambition to register the PAD Geneva and Argenève as an unmissable event in the Art and Design World.
