Slick 2011 — Contemporary Art Fair
Contemporary Art Fair
Past: October 20 → 23, 2011
For the second consecutive year, the 2011 SLICK ART FAIR will be pitching a 2,000m2 marquis tent on the esplanade between the prestigious Palais de Tokyo and Paris’ Museum of Modern Art. More than 40 international galleries and thousands of photographs, drawings, paintings, sculptures, videos and installations will be unveiled during the fair — through solo shows and collective exhibitions.
Since 2006, SLICK has become synonymous with emerging artistic ta- lent and renown as a space for introducing the up-and-coming art scene to both a French and international public. In recent years, certain well- established galleries that present at the FIAC have joined the SLICK ART FAIR to showcase their emerging artists and contribute to the forefront of today’s contemporary art scene.
This October, special projects (installations and monumental works) by select galleries will also punctuate exhibition space, offering pockets of artistic inspiration. In order to highlight the increasingly important role played by the private sector in contemporary art developments, the fair will also welcome prestigious, private-sector collections in an exhibition that will bring together approximately thirty works.
