At the beginning of September, design and art meet at the Grand Palais Éphémère for the 23rd edition of Art Paris Art Fair, of which Intramuros is a partner. This show will bring together 140 galleries of modern and contemporary art, from around twenty countries, certainly mainly from Europe given the context, but also from Korea, Colombia, or the Ivory Coast. At the same time as exploring the galleries, visitors will have access to Solos Shows, some twenty monographic exhibitions (including Nicolas de Crécy, Miguel Chevalier, Gerold Miller, Monique Frydman, etc.). A section called “Promises” will put the spotlight on a dozen young galleries and emerging creation, while the exhibition “Portrait and figuration – A look at the French scene” will bring together some twenty French artists.
To prepare your stroll between art and design, the editorial staff will share a first scouting with you!

Galleria Continua (E13)
A key player in contemporary art and the fair, of course, which this year opened a “Parisian pied-à-terre” in the Marais… the inauguration of which was made under the curatorship of the artist JR himself . At the ephemeral Grand Palais, it will be an opportunity to meet other artists loyal to the Tuscan gallery, be they sculptures by Anish Kapoor, Leandro Erlich, Etel Adnan and even Buren.

Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire (D2)
For the past fifteen years, the Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire has been increasing the number of photo, video, painting and sculpture proposals. Without counting the installations which associate these media.
On the stand, we hope for the feather sculptures and the fantastic universe of Kate Mccguire, the realistic paintings of Thomas Lévy-Lasne and the naked beings of Paz Corona.
