Art Élysées 2012, Paris

If you’re a contemporary art aficionado, then you know that you must visit Europe in October. The month sees some of the world’s biggest art fairs in various cities. Currently  among others, Art Élysées is running for its 6th edition  in Paris on the Champs-Élysées. The show featuring modern and contempory art started on October 18th and will run till October 22nd.

By focusing on modern art, Art Elysées differs from the other art fairs out there, securing a notable foothold within the art market. Each year, inside  the two pavilions located on the Champs-Elysées avenue, from the Grand Palais to the Place de la Concorde, the fair brings together over sixty galleries of modern and contemporary art, all selected by an artistic committee chaired by Baudoin Lebon. During its last edition, Art Élysées made substantial improvement on the quality of its exhibitions. Whilst maintaining a sustainable relationship with modern art galleries, the fair welcomes each year an increasing amount of contemporary art galleries. This year’s exhibits would be focusing on a vast array of art from the second half of the 20th century, generously loaned by a private collector.

The Art Élysées show contributes to the artistic and cultural effervescence of Paris, who is a major player on the international art scene. Visitors will be able to see a wide variety of techniques and styles in the pieces on display from drawings, photography, sculpture to paintings and installations etc. So come to Champs-Elysées avenue and discover new artists or admire work by well established creators.
