Art Paris Art Fair 2019
In 2019, Art Paris is setting out to explore Latin American art from the 1960s to the present day. Around twenty European, Asian and Latin American galleries are presenting an ensemble of 60 Argentinean, Brazilian, Chilean, Columbian, Cuban, Mexican, Peruvian and Venezuelan artists.
In parallel, other projects such as a video programme, installation artworks, the presentation of a private collection and conferences at the Maison de l’Amérique Latine will highlight the creative effervescence that reigns on the continent.
Art Paris has an identity all of its own: an international art fair, it focuses on new discoveries, as well as placing special emphasis on the European scene from the post-war years to the present day, whilst exploring the new horizons of international creation, whether in Asia, Africa, the Middle East or Latin America.
This year, Art Paris will house 150 art and design galleries with 44% of them being first-time participants. These galleries are from 20 different countries, including Cameroun, Bulgaria, Mexico and Peru. The 2019 selection also bears witness to the fair’s move upmarket with the arrival of galleries such as Art: Concept, Ceysson & Bénétière, Jérôme Poggi, Praz Delavallade and SAGE Paris.
Curated by AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions, the 2019 edition presents a critical and subjective overview of the work of women artists in France from the post-war period to the present day with 25 projects selected from amongst the exhibits of participating galleries. This selection is divided into four themes: Abstraction, the Feminist Avant-Garde, Image and Theatricality. AWARE has also been invited to write a critical essay that situates each artist’s work in its historical context. Be sure you don’t miss out on Art Paris.
