From 11 to 13 November, The Carrousel du Louvre welcomed the 5th edition of fotofever paris presenting 70 French and international galleries as well as 200 artists in the very heart of artistic Paris.
With public and critical success, fotofever paris confirms its place as the first art fair dedicated to young collectors.
The induction program ‘start to collect', the quality of welcome and the fresh and fluid scenography that were highly rewarding for the presented galleries and works, were all praised by the many visitors throughout the three days.
Particularly appreciated was “The Collector's Apartment” which welcomed visitors at the entrance of the fair and through its selection of works sparked the collectors' desire, as was the guided tour of works for beginning a collection and the displayed prices on all the walls of the exhibiting galleries.
A program of discussions initiated lively first contacts between artists and collectors on the theme of collecting.
70 French and international galleries exhibited at fotofever paris 2016: 40% were new galleries, 60% came from abroad, the majority from Europe, most notably Italy, Spain and Belgium. Elsewhere Japan is equally a country that has been very present since the creation of the fair in 2011.
Specialised in young photographic artists, fotofever paris attracted more than 10,000 art lovers, collectors, gallerists, curators, directors, photographers and publishers who all appreciated the new scenography and the rich programming.
