Art Elysées, Art & Design 2016 (October 20th-24th)

This year is the 10th edition of ‘Art Elysées, Art & Design’. It takes place on the Champs Elysées between Place Clemenceau and Place de la Concorde at the same time as FIAC which is just a few steps away at the Grand Palais.  Indeed, it was originally conceived as a complementary, rather than alternative, fair to FIAC with a particular focus on French galleries.  The design section is relatively small with only 13 galleries exhibiting this year (as opposed to approximately 65 galleries in the Art section), but the variety of 20th century and contemporary design available is worth a visit if you’re in town.

Espace VIA (Valorzation of Innovation in Design) will have a stand at the Fair. It is a network platform and exhibitors venue set up in 1979 by CODIFAB (French Furniture Industries Development Committee) with the support of the Ministry of Industry. Its goal is to promote contemporary furniture and lighting design along with decorative objects in France and abroad.
