Fine Arts Paris will hold its fourth edition in the courtyard of the Dôme des Invalides on November 18-22, 2020. This new space will accommodate between 65 and 70 exhibitors (as opposed to the current 46). The prestigious and museum-like character of the site corresponds perfectly to Fine Arts Paris classic, refined presentation and high standards in the choice of exhibitors. The larger space will also allow the fair to open up to new specialties such as furniture and decorative arts dating from Antiquity to the present.
"Thanks to this new venue, Fine Arts Paris will be able to grow large enough to take its place in the calendar of major international fairs." Louis de Bayser, President of Fine Arts Paris and Salon du Dessin
This growth will be achieved with the support of Connaissance des Arts, a subsidiary of Groupe Les Echos-Le Parisien and LVMH. Negotiations are underway for the acquisition of an interest in the company that organizes Fine Arts Paris and the Salon du Dessin. Connaissance des Arts will become a shareholder of reference, along with the eight founding partners, who will retain control of the organization and choice of gallery-selection committees for both art fairs.
"With Connaissance des Arts and our other media, we are determined to defend Paris position as an art-world capital. The Fine Arts Paris and Salon du Dessin art fairs are institutions whose growth we want to support in close cooperation with the Groups Arts division." Pierre Louette, Chairman and CEO, Groupe Les Echos-Le Parisien The next Salon Du Dessin, to be held March 25-30, 2020, at the Palais Brongniart in Paris, will have a new design and the same structure, selectivity and conviviality so appreciated by visitors.
Fine Arts Paris and the Salon Du Dessin plan to grow while retaining the qualities that have made them unique and have ensured their success:
The presence of both large international galleries and young dealers with strong personal tastes, who add a breath of fresh air and a daring touch to the fair while meeting its high quality standards.
A cultural program with museum-quality exhibitions, scholarly conferences and off-site tours in partnership with museums and other institutions.
World-class art fairs of a modest size, they are representative of a demanding classical art market.
The third edition of Fine Arts Paris continues at the Carrousel du Louvre through Sunday, November 17, 2019.
