The renowned contemporary art fair Art Paris is back in 2024, and once again throws the spotlight on international artistic creation. After the success of its 2023 edition, it returns to the Temporary Grand Palais, from 4 April to 7 April 2024, with some 136 galleries from 25 countries and more than 900 artists exhibited.

2024 will be the last year in which Art Paris will be held in the ephemeral Grand Palais. In 2025, Art Paris will return to the renovated historic Grand Palais.

Now a not-to-miss event on the Parisian cultural calendar, Art Paris brings together the best of today's artistic creation in a single space. In addition to renowned Art Paris regulars such as Continua, Lelong & Co. and Galerie Perrotin, this year’s fair welcomes new arrivals… There is also an emphasis on galleries with emerging artists, with notably the presence of Backslash, Félix Frachon and Ibasho, and galleries from all over the world, from Guatemala to South Korea to Germany. Thus, offering a wide and comprehensive range of the contemporary art scene.

The event is also an opportunity to meet the artists themselves, who will be present for solo exhibitions.

The Solo Show features 17 solo exhibitions spread throughout the fair. There are modern artists (Jean Hélion, Jacqueline and Jean Lerat), contemporary artists (Gilles Barbier, Samantha McEwen...) and emerging artists (Leyla Cardenas, Lucia Hierro, Katia Kameli...).

The highly international Promises sector is dedicated to nine young galleries (less than 6 years old), which can present a maximum of three artists.

This new edition of Art Paris is structured around two main themes: ‘Fragile Utopias. A focus on the French Scene’ by Éric de Chassey and ‘Art & Craft’ by Nicolas Trembley. In 2024, Art Paris has an eco-design approach that is a first for an international art fair of this scale!

A programme of 35 private visits and exclusive events is also on offer from 2 to 6 April 2024, alongside the Fair. The "A Paris pendant Art Paris" programme highlights the dynamism of the French art scene in Paris in the run-up to the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games: Brancusi at the Centre Pompidou, Jean Hélion at the Musée d'art moderne de Paris, Myriam Mihindou at the Musée du quai Branly, Robert Ryman at the Musée de l'Orangerie, Bijoy Jain/Studio Mumbai at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain.

A must for contemporary art enthusiasts, Art Paris once again offers a quality edition full of surprises, adapted to all audiences, whether they be experts or newcomers.
