The third edition of Paris Internationale will continue to support the young generation of galleries and the artists they represent.
The show will remain faithful to the spirit of the first two editions, but will radically move away from their aesthetics by exchanging the sumptuous decoration of the mansions of the avenue d’Iéna for the Haut Marais and a car park of several levels, a place that sheltered for nearly thirty years the headquarters of the newspaper Liberation co-founded by Jean-Paul Sartre in 1973 following the demonstrations of May 1968.
In this context, which resonates with the current challenges of journalism and urban development, Paris Internationale will host 55 art galleries as well as seven project spaces from 17 countries. Faced with the current climate of fairs in terms of artistic production and hospitality, five emerging galleries – Crèvecœur, High Art, Antoine Levi, Sultana and Gregor Staiger – have launched Paris Internationale to develop a model conducive to new advanced initiatives in contemporary art.
As an official partner, Gucci will support the opening event of Paris International, a commitment to a new generation of artists whose work needs modern patrons to emerge and develop.
