At the 25th Biennale, the New Generation of Art Dealers will Be in the Spotlight
During this major event in the art market calendar that attracts collectors from around the world, visitors will discover more than 4000 square meters of stands with exceptional works of art spanning from archaeology to modern paintings.

PARIS.- Gathered together under the prestigious dome of the Grand Palais from 15th until 22nd September 2010, 80 art dealers and 7 great jewellers will present to the public their most beautiful masterpieces.

Created in 1956 by the Syndicat National des Antiquaires (SNA), the Biennale trully made its debut in 1962, the year of the first International Biennale des Antiquaires. Today, presided over by Hervé Aaron, it gathers the most internationally renowned art dealers, all members of the SNA.

During this major event in the art market calendar that attracts collectors from around the world, visitors will discover more than 4000 square meters of stands with exceptional works of art spanning from archaeology to modern paintings.

With a visual identity made of vivid colours, a simplified floor plan, new exhibitors and displays where works of art take the leading role, the Biennale des Antiquaires celebrates its 25th edition with enthusiasm!

An elegant decor and a simplified floor plan
Created by the Agence Decoral the scenography for the 2010 Biennale, conceived as a discrete and elegant showcase, is intended to highlight the works of art. A dark and covered entrance animated by 25 alcoves full of roses will guide the visitor towards a large square at the centre of which a basin will reflect the dome of the Grand Palais. On each side of this central point, a unique and large alley punctuated by 8 squares will lead to the stands. Spacious entrances framed by arches and openings on all sides: all will be made to arouse the visitors’ curiosity. The dark decor, in light and charcoal grey, will be punctuated by basins with stones and flowers, places for the visitor to rest. Structures in vivid colours and slender bamboos will lend to the whole fair a particularly warm and serene atmosphere. In the evening rays of light and the illumination of the basins, vegetation and the stand’s porticoes will highlight the displays.
