During the fair’s presentation, Lorenzo Rudolf, ArtParis Strategic Director (formerly of Art Basel), insisted on the importance of developing a diverse approach to contemporary art with the “guests” that were initiated last year. A way of emphasizing the confrontation of different disciplines including fashion, architecture, music, advertising and even gastronomy.
For this year’s edition of ArtParis at the Grand Palais until April 3, Lorenzo Rudolf has programmed a “project salon”, encouraging the hundred participating galleries to imagine “concept stands”, offering different ways to look at painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, video or installations. For Rudolf, the main goal of ArtParis is to reflect the vitality of the French art market. “In 2010, we transformed ArtParis, opening it up to new techniques. In 2011, we are continuing this transformation and are preparing a more surprising high quality ArtParis.”
