PARIS.- Thanks to the support of the majority of the participating galleries and the very strong commitment of collectors, organizers confirm that Art Paris will open its doors from 9th to 13th September 2020. It will be the first European cultural event of the season.

Bringing together 112 modern and contemporaries art galleries from 15 countries, this edition has been the subject of reinforced sanitary measures to guarantee a high level of comfort and safety to all exhibitors and visitors and the green light has been given by the authorities both the government and the Grand Palais.

Special health measures and a private preview spread over five days
Under its 45-metre-high glass roof, the Grand Palais is an exceptionally spacious venue. The layout of the fair has been modified. Stands along the walls of the Grand Palais have been removed as well as the cloakrooms and VIP lounge. The central aisle, resting and dining areas have been widened.

There will be only one main entrance on avenue Winston Churchill with hydroalcoholic gel and masks available which must be worn inside the nave. The maximum number of visitors will be limited to around 3,000 people instead of 5,000 allowing a minimum of social distancing of 1 person per 2 square meters.

The opening is spread over 5 days in order to avoid crowds, with a professional trade afternoon on Wednesday 9th September from 11 am to 8 pm reserved for VIP and Prestige card holders and pre-openings from Thursday to Sunday from 10 am to noon dedicated to the Daily Preview card holders.

Supporting galleries and showcasing their work
This edition of the fair, which can be qualified as an act of resistance, reflects Art Paris desire to support and showcase the work accomplished by galleries. According to fair director Guillaume Piens: “It is now more than ever time for galleries to get back to work and meet their collectors. It is just as important for their artists. The advantage of Art Paris is that it is above all a local and regional fair with a large majority of French galleries. 75 % of visitors to the fair come from the Paris region or other areas of France”. Art Paris organiser France Conventions has offered highly favourable conditions to exhibiting galleries: 15% “solidarity” discount will be applied to booth tariffs and Art Paris will create an endowment fund financed by the proceeds of ticket sales to fund the participation of 15 young galleries that have been in existence for less than six years.

An updated edition with 112 galleries (including 24 international galleries) marked by the arrival of several big names and a new wave of young galleries.

For this 22nd edition 112 galleries will be present, including 24 foreign galleries hailing from Korea, Canada, the Ivory Coast and Peru for the most far flung among them, in addition to our European neighbours with galleries from Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Spain, Greece, Italy, Holland, Portugal and Switzerland.

The 2020 selection, which counts 36% of first-time participants, is also marked by the arrival of major galleries such as Perrotin, Jeanne Bucher Jaeger and Karsten Greve (who has teamed up with Caroline Smulders for the occasion), Yvon Lambert, who will be joining the fair’s faithful exhibitors that include Nathalie Obadia, Templon, Lahumière and Paris-Beijing. A prominent place has also been reserved for a young generation of gallerists including Pauline Pavec, Arnaud Faure Baulieu, Eva Hober and 193 Gallery, thereby illustrating Art Paris’s vocation to be a place for discovery.
