Art Paris Art Fair will host 120 international galleries under the glass-domed roof of the Grand Palais. Open to all forms of artistic expression and accessible to all categories of visitors, Art Paris Art Fair presents a wide range of modern and contemporary creations, reinforcing its unique identity by focusing on European creativity. This year the spotlight is on Russia, reflecting the current trend in the international art scene. A central space in the fair will be dedicated to some 11 galleries from a number of cities in Russia including, Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Rostov on Don and Vladivostok while some 15 European galleries will show work by Russian artists. With around 90 artists represented, Art Paris Art Fair will be an opportunity to discover or rediscover Russian art from the 1930s to the most contemporary production.
The 2013 fair will introduce Promises, a new section reserved for young galleries that have been established for 5 years or less, and, for the second year running, presents Limited Edition, a 350 m2 avant-garde platform exploring the relationship and crossover between contemporary art and design.
In cooperation with both the art and coffee table books section of French National Union of Publishers (SNE) and Artcurial art bookshop. This section includes some 30 publishers. For the duration of the fair, artists, authors and art historians will meet the public and sign their books.
