PARIS INTERNATIONALE 2021

Paris Internationale is pleased to announce its 2021 edition, taking place from 20 to 24 October 2021 at 186 avenue Victor Hugo. A professional preview will take place on Tuesday, October 19.

For its seventh edition, Paris Internationale welcomes back longstanding collabo- rators such as e.g. greengrassi (London), Kendall Koppe (Glasgow), KOW (Berlin), Misako & Rosen (Tokyo), Stereo (Warsaw) or Veda (Florence), as well as exciting new exhibitors e.g. Crisis (Lima), Delgosha (Tehran), Ginsberg Galeria (Lima), Grey Noise (Dubai), LC Queisser (Tbilisi), Piedras (Buenos Aires) or First Floor Gallery (Harare). All galleries are bringing solo or duo presentations to an intimate and welcoming setting in a residential building on avenue Victor Hugo in Paris’ 16th arrondisse- ment to the west of the Eiffel Tower.

As every year, Paris Internationale is also supporting the major contribution of non-profit spaces and invited Blitz (Valletta), Rhizome (Algiers) or Selebe Yoon (Dakar) and Studiocur/art (Beirut/Paris) to the fair. This year’s public programs will feature the third itération of Daily Dérives, a series of commented visits and a curated program of conversations. Overseen by Anissa Touati, who has recently joined the team as Curator-at-large, the talks focus on tactics of togetherness while imagining new futures. The full schedule will be announced this week-end.

As part of its support to the young French art scene, this edition will be an op- portunity for the Emerige Endowment Fund to exhibit works by the winners of the Emerige Revelation Grant. The 7th edition of Paris Internationale is also supported by Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette and Métier.

Paris Internationale has also further developed the website to provide a properly pleasurable experience of the galleries’ presentations in viewing rooms allowing for ample contextual material that will be available until October 31st.

A cornerstone of the city’s cultural agenda, Paris Art Week brings an unparalleled energy to the great galleries and cultural institutions of Paris each October. We are happy to be back with a great fully irl edition of Paris Internationale in this context and look forward to seeing you.

« After these long months of lock-down which allowed us to question the way we work, it seems more important than ever to celebrate our community of artists and galleries, and the vivacity of Paris as an art capital »
