A timeless and unique artistic event

Art Élysées celebrates its tenth edition asserting its significance through the fair’s identity: demands for high quality and the guarantee of a substantial selection of artworks; a market incline to a broader range of modern, contemporary art and design; an exceptional location in the heart of Paris on the Avenue des Champs Elysées, the most renowned avenue of the world; the contribution to the capital’s artistic dynamism and activity, its cohesion with public and private stakeholders involved in the culture and art world. All these unique features differentiate the fair from other events. Art Élysées—Art & Design has grown to become a major event by being a complementary and essential fair for art aficionados and collectors seeking reliable assets through valuable artworks.

History

Initially named «Les Élysées de l’Art», Art Élysées—Art & Design was created in October 2007, in pavilions set on the Avenue des Champs Élysées, from place de la Concorde to the Grand Palais, at the same time as Fiac. In the beginning, Art Élysées was a response to the growing demand of French galleries who needed to be present during the Parisian Art Week in October, as well as a new event that offered collectors the chance to see a wider range of artists that have influenced the art of the 20th century and discover quality contemporary art that remains accessible. As a result, the organizers continue to work hand in hand with their exhibitors, cultural institutions and foundations, by offering simultaneously original and exceptional exhibitions in order to enable the growth of this promising event that ranks amongst one of the major artistic fairs in Europe.

The Art Elysées Outlook : Offering a Timeless Visit

The fair’s ongoing success resides in the fact that the organizer’s avoid following trends. With a positioning based more on modern art than contemporary art, the fair is often described as “sensible”: the fair doesn’t aim to be sensible, completely international or even fashionable but to offer a selection of galleries that guarantee works of high quality. This point doesn’t prevent the fair from being innovative, as proved by the many exclusive exhibitions, the creation of a third pavilion presenting 20th century design works seven years ago, or the fourth pavilion, 8e Avenue which presents contemporary art making Art Elysées-Art & Design the first fair to offer a section of urban art.
