GUCCI ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH PARIS INTERNATIONALE 2017
By Crash redaction
For its third edition, Paris Internationale, the contemporary art fair, will stay true to its initial goal by supporting a young generation of artists and galleries but will change its scenery, departing from the luxury and opulence of the private residences of the avenue d’Iena and moving to the Marais in a huge parking that formerly housed the Libération newspaper headquarters. The art fair will host 55 galeries and 8 project spaces from 17 countries.
The Paris Internationale was created by five emerging galleries, Crèvecœur, High Art, Antoine Levi, Sultana and Gregor Staiger, in an attempt to offer new initiatives that take into account today’s problematics. They chose the Italian fashion house Gucci as their official partner, who will support the opening event and the new generation of artists present at the fair. This further endorses Gucci’s will to branch out to art, cinema and music, by acknowledging new talents from around the globe. The brand recently reached out to artist Unskilled Worker for a collaboration. Read our interview here.
The Paris Internationale will take place from October 18th to 22nd.
