The Art of Au­tumn at ART ELYSéES - ART & DE­SIGN

Where Paris - - Arts & Attractions -

Oc­to­ber has tra­di­tion­ally been a month when the arts con­verge on Paris tak­ing the form of in­door and out­door art fairs show­cas­ing artists from all over the world of­fer­ing a uni­fy­ing gath­er­ing from across the globe. And a key case in point is Art Elysées - Art & De­sign, held for the 12th time this year, and which of­fers a unique and dy­namic show­case for art and de­sign dur­ing the French cap­i­tal’s au­tumn art sea­son. Four ephemeral pavil­ions emerge on the Champ­sElysées with each host­ing a dis­tinct sec­tion of the fair, mod­ern art, con­tem­po­rary art, 20th cen­tury and con­tem­po­rary de­sign and ur­ban art. This year the con­tem­po­rary, ur­ban and mod­ern art sec­tions are show­cas­ing some 88 gal­leries from France and abroad with 15 of them pre­sent­ing ur­ban art while the de­sign sec­tion brings to­gether some 14 gal­leries fea­tur­ing fur­nish­ings, rare ob­jects and in­te­ri­ors em­a­nat­ing from French, Ital­ian, Nordic and Bel­gian gal­leries. Art Elysées is host­ing a myr­iad of ex­hi­bi­tions in­clud­ing In­spire by the artist Tris­tan Vyskoc, a show that gives the visi­tor painted, colour­ful and graphic 360° views of Mont Blanc. Mean­while, the Keep It Wild ex­hi­bi­tion from the Franco-Mex­i­can artist and pho­tog­ra­pher Pa­tri­cia de So­lages ex­plores the fragility of our planet earth with pho­tographs of Ice­land, and po­etic ad­ven­ture takes form in the ex­hi­bi­tion by the painter and ur­ban artist Kongo en­ti­tled Avion (Air­plane) pay­ing tribute to An­toine de Sain­tEx­upéry, the pilot, ad­ven­turer and writer. - P.V.
