Choices Paris: a new contemporary art show

While FIAC welcomes more and more professionals and fans every year, Spring now has its own meeting dedicated to contemporary art: the Choices Collectors Weekend. This coming month, May 23-25, 35 Parisian galleries located in the Marais, Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Belleville areas will each be presenting an artist to the public. This new exhibit promises to compete a bit with Berlin, where events of this kind have been organized for years.

Palais des Beaux Arts: an arty temple
For this event, the Palais des Beaux Arts will exhibit the many works featured, jointly with the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts.  One of the project’s founders is Marion Papillon, director of the Claudine Papillon Gallery in the Marais quarter. Among the participating galleries are Odile Ouizeman and Polaris (Paris 3rd arrondissement), Le Minotaure (Paris 6th), and Jocelyn Wolff (Paris 20th).  Get ready to be dazzled!
