The Fair

Art Élysées–Art & Design is one of the major events during the Parisian Art Week, which takes place every year in October. The fair contributes to the capital’s artistic dynamism and activity. Art Élysées stands apart from other fairs by offering reliable assets, valuable works of art and an alternative to the current art market. Through its unique identity and strong stand on art, the fair is a key event for art aficionados and collectors. The Art Élysées–Art & Design fair showcases an exceptional range of art. Art Élysées is the only fair to present 4 different sections, each under an ephemeral pavilion set up along the Avenue des Champs- Élysées. Both French and foreign galleries present a substantial selection of works in response to the market’s current demands. During each edition the fair renews coherent dialogue between modern and contemporary art and 20th century design. Contemporary artists in constant motion can be found next to some of the greatest references that have marked art history of the 20th century. Effective and attractive business opportunities; Art Élysées is a key fair for buyers and art professionals.

The next edition of Art Élysées - Art & Design will take place from October 19th till 23rd, 2017.


Art Élysées thrives on remarkable dynamics: the fair is now composed of four pavilions that house four different sections: modern art, contemporary art, urban art and design. For this 11th edition the urban art section will still take place within the 8e Avenue Pavilion but is now included within the Art Élysées fair, at the same ranks as the other sections. All four pavilions are aligned from place de la Concorde to place Clemenceau and this creates a clear, enjoyable visit.

The design section, near the Grand Palais, is a striking assembly that gathers a dozen of galleries representing 20th century furniture. Wonderful interior decor, Scandinavian furniture and objects: a space where great names of French, Italian and Nordic design coexist.

In 2016, the organizers offered a larger range by showcasing contemporary design with VIA. This year the fair is happy to present Atelier Jespers and Carré Rive Gauche.

For the next edition, the design section aims at current trends in furniture and is destined to all visitors.
