CHOICES Collectors Weekend, a new highlight of contemporary art in Paris: over 35 galleries in the Marais, Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Belleville invite French and international collectors, professionals and art enthusiasts from 23 to 25 May 2014.
CHOICES Collectors Weekend places Paris in the heart of international cultural events and emphasises the vitality and quality of its art scene, confirming its role as an art capital of our time.
An innovative exhibition, for which each gallery selects one participating artist, marks the opening of this special weekend. Hosted at Palais des Beaux-Art, in collaboration with the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux- Arts and curated by Nicolas Bourriaud, Director of the Beaux-Arts, together with a group of young students, the exhibition will feature an engaging parcours of the diverse French contemporary art scene.
CHOICES Collectors Weekend aims to become a yearly key event during springtime in Paris. Initiated by Marion Papillon (Associate Director of the gallery Claudine Papillon) the event is supported by prestigious partners such as Hotel Le Meurice, who will welcome invited international collectors, and the Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard. Neil Beloufa, the exhibiting artist at Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard at the time, will invite graduate artists of the Beaux Arts de Paris to take part in his exhibition.
CHOICES Collectors Weekend is supported by Comité professionnel des Galeries d’art, Galeries Mode d’Emploi, Mairie de Paris, Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Hôtel Le Meurice, Dorchester Collection, Institut français and Silencio.
Exhibition organized in partnership with the Beaux-Arts de Paris and AXA ART.
