Although Art Paris Art Fair is becoming increasingly international (50% of foreign galleries this year compared to 43% in 2013), the fair remains committed to supporting those who constitute its foundations in Europe and France where it is deeply anchored. Among the new participants are Feizi (Brussels), Ditesheim & Maffei Fine Art (Neuchâtel), Alessandro Bagnai (Florence) as well as Mario Mauroner (Vienna) who returns to the fair this year. Among the French, Camera Obscura, Bertrand and Grimont are returning while others are coming for the first time, including Françoise Besson (Lyon), In Camera (Paris), Françoise Livinec (Paris) and in the design section, Jousse (Paris), Armel Soyer (Paris) and NeC Design (Paris).

Kicking off the art fair circuit with its new time slot at the end of September, VIENNAFAIR relies on two key elements to make itself visible in the vast international art world: The longstanding ties between Vienna and emerging art and collector markets like the CEE and Middle East regions, and the intensified cultivation of relationships between galleries, collectors, and other important protagonists in the art scene. VIENNAFAIR will thereby respond to the growing public interest in regions that have immense and flourishing potential as they ascend from under the international art radar.
