The 21st edition of Art Paris will focus on women artists and Latin America and will highlight the effervescent cultural life of the continent.
"Southern Stars: An Exploration of Latin American Art," exhibition will explore Latin-American art from the 1960s to nowadays. Around 20 European, Asian and Latin American art galleries will present 60 artists from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, Chile, Colombia, and Cuba. The exhibition was curated by the independent art historian, Valentina Locatelli.
Large-scale installations reflecting on Latin America's art scenes will be displayed throughout the Grand Palais, including one by the Mexican artist Betsabee Romero, which evokes a requiem in memory of that symbol of 20th-century consumer society, the polluting car.
Art Paris will also host a selection of works by Latin American women artists from the private collection of the London-based collector Catherine Petitgas and a Project Room presenting art video from Mexico, Columbia, Peru, and Argentina.
In addition, two conferences will discuss the place of Latin American women artists on both the French and international art scenes.
The 21st edition of Art Paris will run from April 4-7, 2019 at the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2018, Art Paris hosted about 60, 000 visitors from 50 countries.
