GAZETTE DROUOT INTERNATIONAL / ART FAIR

March, before a solo exhibition already scheduled by the gallery in March 2014. Michel Rein is showing the work of a young photographer, LaToya
Ruby Frazier, as a world exclusive. The Lelong Gallery has selected a series of Indian ink drawings on paper by Joan Mirὀ, which have been little seen up till now: his "Graphismes concrets" of 1951. Worth noting is the daring stance taken by the Brussels gallery Meesen De Clercq, which is only presenting two works: a sculpture by Katrin Sigurdartóttir – the artist representing Iceland at the Venice Biennial – and a drawing seven-metre long by Evariste Richer. The high cost of a stand (€525 per m2 in the nave and €485 on the first floor, not counting further costs for facilities) leads many galleries to join forces within the same space. They include the Rome-based Monitor and the Kadel-Willborn Gallery of Düsseldorf which share two artists, including Francesco Arena, and two from New York, the UBU Gallery and Sophie Scheidecker Fine Art, appearing alongside safe investments like Hans Bellmer, Georges Hugnet and Molinier. The Paris fair is also an occasion for making discoveries. Marion Dana of the New Gallery thinks that ‘the FIAC's role is to present unknown artists in Paris; that's what collectors expect of me.’ She is thus scheduling a solo show for Parker Ito, a young American artist from the post-Internet generation. The price range will be very broad: from €100 for the PUNK Cabinet of curiosities/MADE in Raymond Pettibon, to the mfc-michèle didie gallery with works at several million!

A bubbling week of contemporary art
The FIAC acts as a sounding board, relaying the latest news of many artists, like Matias Faldbakken at Eva Presenhuber who have an exhibition opening at Le Consortium in Dijon a week before the fair, and, echoing the Venice Biennial, Paulo Nazareth at Mendes Wood (São Paulo) and Valentin Carron at Eva Presenhuber. Highlights will include Jean Dubuffet's sculpture “Welcome Parade”, rising up at the entrance to the fair in front of the Petit Palais (the Pace Gallery and Waddington Custot Galleries), and the 193 flags of the artistic cooperative Société Réaliste, deployed six metres up on the Solférino bridge linking the Louvre to the Musée d’Orsay (Jérôme Poggi Gallery). The bubbling excitement in Paris can thus be seen in not only a fine array of fringe fairs (including Slock, Art Elysées, Show Off, Yia Art Fair and Cutlog), but also various FIAC-related events in the Jardin des Tuileries and the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle, the presentation of the Prix Marcel Duchamp at the Grand Palais, a series of performances at the Musée du Louvre and the late-night opening of various Paris galleries on Thursday 24 October – not to mention Laurence Dreyfus' event, "Chambre à Part". The whole city will be throbbing in unison with the creativity of our times. October in Paris will be nothing if not contemporary! Stéphanie Pioda
