It is full of regret and with huge disappointment that we are obligated to cancel this 14thedition.
The new health and safety measures announced yesterday by the French Ministry of Health and Solidarity do not permit a safe edition of the Art Élysées – Art & Design fair.
Within this complex and difficult context and along with the support of our loyal galleries, art professionals and collectors, we have strived these past few months to behold an extraordinary organization. In close collaboration with our determined exhibitors and our partners we were able to gather for this 2020 edition a strong selection of sixty art and design galleries within two pavilions. However with the responsibility and being mindful of respecting the health and safety measures, and in order to protect our exhibitors and visitors, it was no longer possible to maintain the fair in such a climate which would have harmed the very success of the event.
We wish to thank all the galleries who stuck with us to the very end, entrusting us and sharing their professional input. We pay tribute to their courage, at a time in history where their very profession needs it the most, we remain more than ever in close contact with them.
We would also like to thank all of our suppliers and partners with whom we have collaborated for the past 14 years, striving towards bettering this unique fair and its organization.
During this unprecedented era, the team will continue to prepare with gusto, along the lines of the new health and safety measures, the new 2021 edition, where we hope the context will gather all the necessary factors needed and deserved by the Art Élysées fair.
Art Élysées will make the most of these exceptional times in order to offer a new project: digital, educational, using our skills and values of transmission and expertise in the Art world. We look forward to sharing our ideas with you all.
Feel free to contact us for any enquiry you may have and we look forward to working with you next year.
