Quick reminder! Only 4 days to go until the 6th edition of the Parisian “Drawing Now” art fair opens!
15€ are a bit too much if you ask us, but this is one of those “unique” European art fairs that much like Madrid’s Estampa and to some extent Frieze, allows you to discover the freshest in contemporary art… only this time, the fair is only dedicated to the art of drawing.
82 international galleries will show during 4 days the contemporary artistic scene through the drawings of well-known and emerging artists, where? right under the most important museum in the city: The Louvre. The renovated mini-chic-mall “Carrousel du Louvre” will host the biggest part of the exhibition with the focus on “Reference” (focus on 70 well‐established galleries), “Emergence” (a dozen of recently opened galleries presenting the art of “emerging artists”), “Video” ( curated by the Show’s team with the support of Brett Littman), and “Talks” which is a first for the fair… a programme of encounters with artists, collectors and institutions.
Also very important to notice the always impressive “Hors les murs” (outdoors) side of the exhibition which this year takes place very close by, at 17 rue Richelieu (a 5min walk from the Carrousel). A 2-storey building transformed by artists and willing to become a “giant contemporary drawing laboratory”. Mmmm we’ll see.
