Paris, France — They are two of the Parisian capitals most emblematic springtime art fairs and they both came back in style this year while both celebrated their 25th anniversaries. Art Paris and PAD Paris Design + Art enjoyed record breaking visitors and were beautifully appointed with Art Paris being held at the Grand Palais Ephémère on the Left Bank and the PAD in luxury temporary tents in the Tuileries Garden on the Right Bank.
PAD, regarded as the world’s leading design fair, brings to the French capital some art and some jewelry but mostly it’s an affair of design and décor with visitors purchasing items for their home or their client’s home(s). The galleries, both confirmed and emerging, come largely from France but, as well, Italy, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Greece and India among others. An optimistic and joyful installation work by Diane de Kergel entitled Above the Sun, Only Sky opened up the show reflecting the artist’s poetic commitment. The show was held from March 29th until April 2nd.
Meanwhile Art Paris was being played out at the same time and in style with galleries from France and abroad showing modern and contemporary art and a number of masterpieces and soon to be masterpieces. Art Paris, the leading springtime art show in the capital, brought together 134 galleries from 25 countries in the Grand Palais Ephémère and enjoyed a record-breaking number of 81,857 visitors. Many of the galleries wound up the fair sold-out and myriad works reached the six figure realm. Some of the galleries opted for solo shows. Save the date for next year’s Art Paris show which is slated to be held in the same venue from April 4th until April 7th.
