Art Paris, the annual international contemporary art fair, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The art fair will be held from March 30th to April 2nd, 2023 at the Grand Palais Éphémère, and will feature 134 galleries from 25 countries. Founded in 1999 by France Conventions, a French family-owned SME, Art Paris has become a must-attend event for art lovers during springtime. Thanks to the efforts of Julien Lecêtre, Valentine Lecêtre, and the fair’s general curator, Guillaume Piens, Art Paris has gained a reputation for being a platform for innovative, groundbreaking, and modern art.
As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations, Art Paris has launched a range of new initiatives to make the art fair more eco-friendly. The fair is implementing an eco-design approach based on lifecycle analysis, which is a first for art fairs worldwide. In collaboration with Karbone Prod and Solinnen, Art Paris is committed to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices, with a focus on reducing transportation and visitor flows. The fair is aiming to set a new standard for environmental practices within the art industry.
Paris has long been recognized as a hub for the arts and is home to some of the world’s most prestigious museums and galleries. Art Paris continues to add to the city’s cultural reputation, providing a platform for emerging artists and showcasing contemporary art from around the world. The fair’s VIP program, which is open to collectors and industry professionals, offers a unique opportunity to explore the city’s rich cultural heritage.
One of the goals of Art Paris is to make contemporary art accessible to a wider audience. As part of this mission, the fair provides over 80 guided tours with the Observatory of Contemporary Art.
