Art Paris 2024

The Paris art fair propagates the unity of art and craft.

Taking place from April 4 to 7, 2024 at the Grand Palais Éphémère, the 26th Art Paris presents itself as an important art event in the spring. The fair is intended to help reaffirm the artistic renaissance of the French capital. It is the most international event to date, combining modern and contemporary influences that are currently shaping the global art scene, according to Paris. A total of 136 modern and contemporary art galleries from 25 countries are taking part. It is further reported: “For the first time, the Paris Spring Art Fair presents more than 40% international galleries, underlining the city’s strong presence and influence on the global art scene.”

In addition, there are recurring galleries such as Poggi, Frank Elbaz, Continua, Lelong & Co, Almine Rech and Perrotin. From the point of view of creative craftsmanship, the following concept makes you sit up and take notice. 

Art & Craft, curated by Nicolas Trembley

Curated by art critic and independent exhibition curator Nicolas Trembley, “Art & Craft” will explore the political, social and feminist implications of craft and identify ways in which the dominant narrative of power in the art world can be challenged or subverted. The theme looks at how modern and contemporary artists are making the world of craft (ceramics, glass, tapestries, etc.) their own. Among the main exhibiting artists are Sheila Hicks, Jane Yang-d’Haene, Thomas Bayrle and Jeanne Vicerial.
