One of the major events during the Parisian Art Week, Art Élysées – Art & Design is coming back for its 12th edition this October. Participating vibrantly in the artistic effervescence of the capital, it is the only fair to present four different sections across four ephemeral pavilions set up along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées – modern art, contemporary art, urban art and design.

Art Élysées 2018 will bring together an impressive selection of 110 French and international galleries which reflect the market’s current trends. As in every edition before, the fair will renew the coherent dialogue between modern and contemporary art and 20th-century design, connecting the great art references of the 20th century to contemporary artists. With dynamic and quality exhibitions, this unique art and design event is not to be missed.

Exhibitions

For this 12th edition, the fair will set up different events within the fairgrounds, such as three exhibitions of three contemporary artists from different backgrounds which focuses on the ecological issues.

The exhibition Inspire by Tristan Vyskoc features 16 paintings of 2 meters high each, a huge encircling canvas 32 meters long inside which people may walk around and which offers to see the Mont-Blanc 360, reminding us about our responsibility as men turned the earth into Anthropocene.

Keep It Wild by Patricia de Solages tells the stories of our planet’s generous yet fragile nature throughout her pictures. Images from the series are printed out on survival blankets, as the artist had a need to show the fragile nature and save the sea and the glaciers.

The exhibition Le Nord 1000 by Kongo will present works the urban artist created for the Saint-Exupery Foundation which highlight the values they share through a tribute to the famed author. The artist painted Nord1000 aircraft, the German airplane which is historically as well as symbolically of special importance.

The fair will also present the Imaginary Collection, welcoming B Signature Hotel & Resorts Group. The hotel group’s management played the part and gathered a collection of timeless works shown in the shared open spaces of each of their hotels, demonstrating the group’s commitment in favor to contemporary artistic creation.
