Art Paris announces an evolution in its partnership with international art platform Artsy, with whom an online edition of the fair is being presented.
Thanks to this partnership, visitors are able to access content featuring artists represented by the one hundred or so national and international galleries that would have been taking part in the fair. Art Paris Digital is also the opportunity to purchase a selection of more than 1,000 recent works by these artists.
Talking about this initiative Artsy Chief Revenue Officer Dustyn Kim commented: "Artsy has always set itself the task of promoting artistic creation and artists worldwide. As a result of the pandemic and the difficulties that the art world is currently encountering, we are more than ever committed to this cause and are actively supporting the art world and our partners. We are delighted to be able to help Art Paris with an exclusive online edition on Artsy in replacement of the physical edition of the fair that has unfortunately had to be cancelled. In addition, we have opened this event to all of the fairs exhibitors, not just those galleries that are Artsys partners."
Guillaume Piens, Art Paris Fair Director and Catherine Vauselle, Communication & Partnerships Director, are delighted about this high-quality partnership with Artsy "which in this period of lockdown opens a digital window to culture and allows visitors to access the content of the 22nd edition that unfortunately couldnt take place."
Art Pariss profile on the Artsy website will be updated throughout the event with original and unique new content.
