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 housed the headquarters of Libération, a newspaper co-founded by Jean-Paul Sartre in 1973 in the wake of the Paris protest movements of May 1968, for almost thirty years.
Oct 18 – 22, 2017
11, Rue Beranger, 75003 Paris
From its inaugural edition, Paris Internationale has supported the major contribution of non-profit spaces by inviting them free of charge to take part in the fair. This year Paris Internationale will welcome eight Parisian non-profits to promote and celebrate their often fragile existence.
TALKS — The Cheapest University
Since 2015, The Cheapest University organized collaborative work events in Paris for both emerging and established international artists to discuss and work together in a modest and loosely pedagogical way. Laying its foundation with questions rather than solutions T.C.U. has formed its own distinct version of what can perhaps be described as an ‘Art School’.
