Art Paris Art Fair 2015: Southeast Asia
From 26th to 29th March 2015, Art Paris Art Fair is the leading springtime event in Paris which brings together 145 galleries from some 20 countries at the Grand Palais. The fair presents a wide panorama of modern and contemporary art, including also photography, design and art books.
With a strong international focus, the fair has positioned itself as a pioneer in the exploration of regions of the world whose artistic creation is seldom, if ever, shown in France. Art Paris Art Fair looks at a different geography of the art world that takes visitors off the beaten track to places like Casablanca, Bangkok, Zürich, Moscow, Bucharest or Singapore.
Singapore and Southeast Asia are guests of honour in 2015. The general section this year includes some 30 solo shows. Promises, the section dedicated to young galleries, the Art Books section for coffee table and artists’ books, the ArtDesign platform that explores the links between contemporary art and design all combine to give Art Paris Art Fair its unique identity as a European fair focusing on discovery, on dialogue among different art forms and on the relationship between East and West.
