Art Paris Art Fair(Art Paris, Director Guillaume Piens) gathers 142 galleries from 22 different countries at the Grand Palais in 2018. Art Paris will present 36 monographic exhibitions in Solo Show and emerging young artists. Switzerland is the guest of honour of the 2018 edition.
With the main fair and solo exhibitions, the themed curation will be presented for an overview of the French art scene, juxtaposing the subjective, historical and critical perspective of the exhibition curator and art critic François Piron. Art historian and exhibition curator Karine Tissot has been entrusted with the Switzerland Guest of Honour programme. This spotlight will endeavour to promote the wealth and diversity of the Swiss scene with a selection of around one hundred artists represented by either Swiss or European galleries, a programme of videos projected on the façade of the Grand Palais and in the Project Room, and Helvetia Art Collection will mark the last presentation with Swiss’s contemporary art.
