ARTAGON offers each year an international encounter for art schools students, with the support of the French Ministry of Culture, the City of Paris, Société Générale, patrons and partners.This event, a true world premiere, takes the form of a collective exhibition of 45 art students selected by an international jury within 15 invited art schools.

For this third edition, the jury is chaired by Hans Ulrich Obrist and made of 25 artists and personalities from the creation world. Jean-Jacques Aillagon, former French Minister of Culture, has been its Honorary President since the first edition.

They have selected 3 students in each of them in the occasion of a visit of studios or a specially organized exhibition.
