For its 31st edition, which will take place from 13 to 17 September at the Grand Palais, La Biennale Paris offers an artistic route among the collections of 75 exhibitors.
As every year, at The Grand Palais the oldest of the Art Salons, created in 1962 by the National Union of Antique Dealers (SNA) , wants to keep its rank. Thus, to avoid any controversy over the origin of works, the biennial commission, chaired by Christopher Forbes, has further strengthened controls. "The Biennial must be irreproachable and we gave ourselves all the means for that," says Mathias Ary Jan, president of the SNA for three years."
Opening the Salon to contemporary art, fashion, comics and photography contributes to the velvet revolution that this one is going through. The presence of Bahrain, guest of honor, proves his ambition to shine abroad. The gala dinner supported by Aliph, foundation that works for the reconstruction of historical monuments destroyed in conflict zones, will reap the benefits. They will compete this time in the rehabilitation of the museum of Mosul, in Iraq. To perpetuate the antique and gallery trade, the Biennale Paris supports young vocations by inviting twelve young merchants.
