A Roll-out of Art

The third edition of Paris Internationale will continue the effort to support a young generation of galleries and their artists. The fair will adhere to the spirit of the first two editions, but will see a complete departure from their aesthetic by exchanging the ornate settings of the hôtels particuliers on Avenue d’Iéna for a converted multi–story car park in the Haut–Marais that for almost thirty years, housed the headquarters of Libération, a newspaper co-founded by Jean-Paul Sartre in 1973. In this context, which will resonate with current challenges to journalism and urban development, Paris Internationale will welcome 55 galleries as well as seven project spaces from 17 countries. Responding to the current climate of art fairs in regard to artistic production and reception, Paris Internationale is a joint initiative from five emerging galleries – Crèvecoeur, High Art, Antoine Levi, Sultana and Gregor Staiger – as a collective attempt to develop an appropriate model to foster new advanced initiatives in contemporary art. Gucci in its role of Official Partner will support the Paris Internationale opening event, a further accomplishment in sustaining a new generation of artists whose work relies on modern patrons‘support to emerge and flourish.
