Here are the 156 galleries participating in Paris+, the first Art Basel fair in the French capital

Art Basel’s new flagship fair in the French capital has released its list of exhibitors today, with a total of 156 participating galleries from 30 countries.

Paris+, the Swiss trade fair organizer’s first event in the City of Light, will take place from October 20 to 23 (October 19 being reserved for VIPs), in the exhibition hall of the Grand Palais Éphémère. HMajor international galleries such as Pace, Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth, Esther Schipper, Sadie Coles HQ and Marian Goodman will be there, alongside a veritable who’s who of Parisian galleries, such as Kamel Mennour, Perrotin, Galerie Chantal Crousel , the Nathalie Obadia Gallery, and others.

The list of galleries is likely to add salt to the wound of FIAC, the long-running French fair that has been ousted of the Grand Palais earlier this year. The Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais (RMN-GP), which manages the site, opened the call for tenders for the prestigious venue last year and took the decision to rent it last October to MCH, the parent company of Art Basel, for seven years. RX, owner of the FIAC, will take the place in November, for the Paris Photo show.

In response, RX called the decision “sad” and “violent”, with many Paris-based galleries speaking out in support of FIAC. Created in 1974, the fair had been an indicator of the French contemporary art scene for decades. Some dealers worry that Art Basel is taking a more global perspective, largely to the detriment of local galleries.

In a press statementRMN-GP said it hopes Art Basel will bring “solid investment” to Paris, saying it is “crucial for the development of this fair in an increasingly competitive market”, as well as a “unique” brand and identity. in Paris with a local team.

About two-thirds of galleries participating in Paris+, 101 out of 156, exhibited at FIAC in 2021. Paris+ has also succeeded in allaying some fears of under-representation of Parisian galleries, with 61 local galleries representing more than a third of the total.

Marion Papillon, president of the Professional Committee of French Art Galleries, nevertheless described Paris+ today’s announcement as “disappointing”, adding: “Turnover is more visible in foreign galleries [while] the selection of young galleries is really small.

A total of 16 galleries have been selected for the fair’s emerging program, including Galeria Dawid Radziszewski in Warsaw and Marfa in Beirut.

Clément Delépine, director of Paris+, redoubled his commitment to local galleries and defended the fair. In a statement, he called the composition of the gallery roster “reflecting our commitment to creating a show that is both specific to its host city and has strong global resonance.”

For the duration of the fair, Paris+ will also include a project-based sector called Sites, in which different locations across the city will be activated by public art commissions. These include the Jardin des Tuileries, Place Vendôme, the National Eugène-Delacroix Museum and the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins des Beaux-Arts de Paris, as well as numerous collaborations with the city’s cultural institutions.

As usual for other editions of Art Basel, the Conservations conference program will also take place, on a boat moored in front of the Eiffel Tower. It is organized in Paris by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou.

According to Marc Spiegler, Global Director of Art Basel, “The galleries selected for our Paris debut embody Art Basel’s long tradition of juxtaposing high-quality historic materials with avant-garde ones.” And to add that “just as important for us, the galleries that make Paris so dynamic today are present in large numbers, in many market sectors, giving this show a singularly Parisian personality”.
