Press release - 11th February 2021 After consulting several times with all our partners, Art Paris 2021, which was initially planned for 8-11 April, will now be held from 9-12 September (with the preview on 8 September). The current evolution of the health crisis (with the appearance of new variants around the world and delays in the vaccination campaign), the absence of visibility as to when the borders will reopen, without talking about Paris’s institutions, hotels and restaurants and the prolongation of the ban on major events in France until June means that a cloud of uncertainty weighs on this spring. The members of the selection committee and all the exhibitors with whom we spoke about the subject agree with the decision to postpone the fair, judging that conditions in September will be more favourable and will ensure the success of the event, despite the number of fairs scheduled in autumn. As provided for in the general terms and conditions of sale relevant to the 2021 fair, the deposits paid by exhibitors will be transferred in their entirety to the September 2021 edition. Although it is being postponed until September, Art Paris will still be the first modern and contemporary art fair to be held at the Grand Palais Ephémère on the Champ- de-Mars, a spectacular temporary structure fit for the 21st century designed by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte. It will bring together a dazzling list of 140 galleries from 20 countries in Paris, a city that is more than ever a hub for contemporary art in Europe. --------------------------------------------------- Art Paris, the first art fair to take up residence in the ephemeral Grand Palais on the Champ-de-Mars in April 2021 After being the first art fair worldwide to open its doors after lockdown restrictions ended, Art Paris will also be the first art fair to take up residence in the ephemeral Grand Palais on the Champ-de-Mars from 8-11 April 2021. This spectacular temporary structure fit for the 21st century designed by architect Jean Michel Wilmotte is located in front of the Ecole Militaire and aligned with the Eiffel Tower: it will play host to the Grand Palais’ events until the latter reopens in time for the Olympic Games in 2024.
