Fotofever: Inaugural art fair in the Espace Pierre Cardin in Paris this November
For its first edition, fotofever will present around 30 international galleries in a beautiful space designed by scenograph Stéphane Plassier.

PARIS.- More than ever, in November 2011, Paris will be the world’s main stage of photography. Visitors, professionals, collectors, and journalists and photographers will gather for an incredible week dedicated to photography. Enthusiastic with the effervescent market of photography, Paris is hosting a new event: fotofever.

Fotofever will take place in the Espace Pierre Cardin, a few steps away from the Grand Palais. There, you will all be able to share your passion for contemporary photography, digital art and video. The key word for the event is discovery!

Cécile Schall, the creator of this new event, instills into fotofever a spirit of discovery and independence that her grandfather - the photographer Roger Schall - would have called for.

For its first edition, fotofever will present around 30 international galleries in a beautiful space designed by scenograph Stéphane Plassier.

Open to new artistic perspectives, fotofever will explore all aspects of contemporary photography, digital art and video. This is a concept and exhibition for other capitals too / Brussels, Geneva.

Some of the first galleries that have been selected:

3ème Rue Galerie
Paris/Marseille - France

3ème Rue Galerie relies on a simple idea: present an artist simultaneously in two galleries in two French cities Paris and Marseille. For fotofever, 3ème rue Galerie will present prints by Benjamin Dubourg. This photographer transforms subjects into signs. His artistic expression is made of visual poetry. « I will remain an earthman » Benjamin says, questioning the dimensions of reality.

Envie d’art
Paris - France

The ENVIEDART galleries were created 10 years ago by Yann and Cathy Bombard: 3 galleries in Paris, 1 in London that represent a new generation of galleries. A friendly atmosphere and a rigorous selection of work. 4 photographers will be presented
in fotofever: Joseph Klibansky from South Africa whose urban landscapes reshape the idea of the city; Michael Lafontan, whose world is strongly inspired by his northern roots; Robbert Fortgens who takes photographs like a painter. Last but not least, French photographer Jean Michel Berts whose new portraits revisit realism in photography.

Espace Art 22
Brussels - Belgium

Created by two like souls, the photographer Eric de Ville de Goyet and the Art historian Didier Brouwers, L’Espace art 22 presents 3 artists : the Russian Oleg Dou, whose supernatural portraits, clones from another world, incarnated by their singular look, intrigue us by their strangeness. Caï Hongshuo takes up the traditional themes of etchings and or Far- Eastern artistic culture; the photomontages of Eric de Ville are satirical or humorous regarding important social themes.

Galerie Antonio Nardone
Brussels - Belgium

“We are a particular sort of gallery”, Antonio Nardone explains. “We work only with artists we meet, get to know well and observe as they work in their workshop”. His exhibition: “the show of 250” (work under 250 euros) has brought him success. Here at fotofever, he will present the paradoxical images of Patrick Van Roy.

Galerie Beckel Odille Boïcos Paris - France
Daniel Beckel, an international lawyer (USA), Pascal Odile, an expert in art and gallerist (France) and Christophe Boïcos, a professor of art History (Greece) opened their gallery 10 years ago. They present artists who express the contemporary world through traditional media. Photography is one of them. Here, in Espace Pierre Cardin, they will show the totally new composition of Russian artist Vadim Guschin whose work reminds us both of Malevitch paintings and still lives of Flemish Masters. South African Vivian van Bleck’s ‘photo collages’ will also be exhibited and her nostalgic vision of a troubled Eastern Europe, along with Jean-Christophe Ballot, whose shots of cities and museums explore the invisible presence of emptiness.

Gallery Ella Arps
Amsterdam - Netherlands

Founded in 1902, the Arps&Co gallery became the official supplier of the Royal Residence and a place where contemporary artists can get together. Fotofever gives her the opportunity to show Elizabeth Kleinveld and her drifting flora continuously attracted by seemingly sleeping waters. Dutch artist Annelies whose nude models are driven by the light of emptiness will also be presented, as well as Italian photographer Franco Fontana who plays with colour, light and the human body.
