Here Are the 156 Galleries Participating in Paris+, Art Basel’s First Fair in the French Capital

Art Basel’s new flagship fair in the French capital released its list of exhibitors today, with a total of 156 participating galleries from 30 countries.


Paris+, the Swiss fair organizer’s first event in the city of lights, is set to take place from October 20-23 (with October 19 reserved for VIPs), in the Grand Palais Éphémère exhibition hall. Heavyweight international galleries such as Pace, Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth, Esther Schipper, Sadie Coles HQ and Marian Goodman will take part, alongside a veritable who’s who’s who of Parisian galleries, like Kamel Mennour, Perrotin, Galerie Chantal Crousel, Galerie Nathalie Obadia, and others.

The list of galleries is likely to add salt to the wound for FIAC, the long-running French fair which was ousted from the Grand Palais earlier this year. The Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand Palais (RMN-GP), which runs the site, opened up bidding for the prestigious venue last year, and made the decision to lease it this October to MCH, Art Basel’s parent company, for seven years. FIAC’s owner RX, will take the spot in November, for the Paris Photo fair.

In response, RX called the move “sad” and “violent,” with many Paris-based galleries speaking up in support of FIAC. Founded in 1974, the fair had been a bellwether for the French contemporary art scene for decades. Some dealers have worried that Art Basel would take a more global outlook, largely to the detriment of local galleries.

In a press statementRMN-GP stated hopes that Art Basel will bring “robust investment” to Paris, deeming it “crucial for the development of this fair in , its competitive market,” as well as a brand and identity “unique” to Paris with a locally based team.

About two-thirds of the galleries taking part in Paris+, 101 out of 156, exhibited at FIAC in 2021. Paris+ has also managed to quell some of the fears that Parisian galleries would be under-represented, with 61 local galleries making up more than one-third of the total.

Marion Papillon, president of France’s Professional Committee of Art Galleries, nevertheless the announcement by Paris+ today a “disappointment,” adding: “Turnover is more visible on foreign galleries [while] the selection of young galleries is really small.”

A total of 16 galleries were selected for the fair’s emerging program, including Galeria Dawid Radziszewski from Warsaw and Marfa from Beirut.

Clément Delépine, Director of Paris+, doubled down on his commitment to local galleries and defended the fair. In a statement, he called the composition of the gallery list as one that “reflects our commitment to create a show that is both specific to its host city and has a strong global resonance.”

During the fair’s run, Paris+ will also include a project-based sector called Sites, in which different venues across the city will be activated by public art commissions. These include the Jardin des Tuileries, Place Vendôme, Musée national Eugène-Delacroix, and Chapelle des Petits-Augustins des Beaux-Arts de Paris, as well as a number of collaborations with the city’s cultural institutions.

As is typical with other editions of Art Basel, the Conservations program of talks will also take place, on a docked boat opposite the Eiffel Tower. It is curated in Paris by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou.

According to Marc Spiegler, Global Director of Art Basel, “the galleries selected for our debut in Paris embody Art Basel’s long-standing tradition of juxtaposing high-quality historical with avant-garde material.” He added that, “equally important to us, the galleries that make today’s Paris so dynamic are present in large numbers, across many market sectors, giving this show a singularly Parisian personality.”
