🇫🇷ART PARIS ART FAIR 09/2020 ( PART 1 ) 09/09/2020 PARIS 4K

147 galleries had responded when the fair was scheduled for spring. They will be only 112 this fall (from fifteen countries), a large third of which are participating in Art Paris for the first time. The maintenance of the fair was decided in June, after questioning the galleries and 5,000 collectors. This event benefits from an advantage in times of epidemic and border closures: some 80% of its visitors traditionally come from France.

For the largest art fair in Paris, the International Contemporary Art Fair (FIAC), initially scheduled at the Grand Palais at the end of October, the decision to maintain or cancel could be announced this week, after a survey of galleries during summer. The “Biennale Paris”, known under the name “antiques fair”, canceled its holding this fall at the Grand Palais. On the other hand, she came to an agreement with Christie’s to present an online sale that brings together 42 merchants from September 24 to October 8. Smaller in size, the Paris Design Week design fair was able to open last week, with 250 participants in exhibitions and events across the capital.
