Natural Histories: A Focus on the French Scene

From 7 to 10 April 2022, Art Paris brings together 130 modern and contemporary galleries from 23 countries. This 24th edition makes not only a strong commitment to the environment but presents a new approach to art that focuses on the living world with two themes – Natural Histories and Art & Environment – combined with an innovative and sustainable approach to organising an art fair.

Gilles Aillaud [+]Coatis jaunes, 1982

Since 2018, Art Paris has consistently supported the French contemporary art scene by inviting curators to lend a subjective, historical and critical eye on a selection of specific projects by French artists presented by participating galleries. With Natural Histories: A Focus on the French Scene, independent curator Alfred Pacquement will share his perspective on the French scene with a selection of 20 artists from different generations, whilst considering the way in which these artists see the natural world and how plants and animals have once again found their place in the contemporary aesthetic.
