Paris hosts one of the largest general art fairs in the world
Hundreds of artists from different backgrounds will see their finest works of modern and contemporary art presented at the Grand Palais during this huge exhibition that covers the post-war period to today. The Art Paris Art Fair also features ‘Promises’, a platform for emerging talent, and the ‘Solo Show’, which will feature in-depth looks at the work of 20 major artists! In a further innovation, and as a way of attracting travellers to the fair, the Solo Show of the Art Paris Art Fair will also be installing various works in AirFrance cars!
