Galleries, back to basics
Art Market | In late May in Paris, 40 art galleries will come together in an international-caliber event intended to refocus attention on the traditional nucleus of the art market : artist-gallery-collector.
In alignment with the pioneering event Gallery week-end Berlin, CHOICHES PARIS was conceived to respond to a withdrawal of collectors from galleries, who are increasingly solicited by a tight schedule of fairs, international biennials and other events.
The event aims to shed new light on the role of the dealer and the specificity of the gallery in a context of an increasingly complex and dematerializing art market, with the arrival of new marketplace advisors and techniques.
The gallery was initially born with modernity : a model that professionalized the activity of the intermediary through the spirit and structure of a business that would become the keystone of the primary art market of the 20th century. Today in crisis, the gallery sees itself as responsible for insuring a regular market set against a global market where powerful new spheres of influence are taking shape. For an art lover, the gallery remains an indispensable terrain for discovering new art works in good conditions.
CHOICES PARIS is a cooperative effort between galleries who have mutualized their clientele. These international collectors are invited to immerse themselves in a Parisian weekend including a prestigious exhibition at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts, curated by Alfred Pacquement for this second edition, private events and gallery visits.
A round table debate « Contemporary art : active passion or reasonable investment? » organized by the principal partner of CHOICES PARIS - AXA ART - will be held Thursday 21 May at 19h (to sign up : firstname.lastname@example.org
From the 29th to 31st May 2015, CHOICES PARIS galleries open their doors to you !
