Exposition passéeDu 17 au 22 mars 2010

Crossovers and exhibitions curated by gallery owners
From 18 to 22 March 2010 at the Grand Palais of Paris, the
ARTPARIS+GUESTS modern and contemporary art fair will
welcome some one hundred French and international galleries
invited to exhibit on the basis of an original concept.
The most active and creative galleries on the international
market are being asked to participate in ARTPARIS+GUESTS by
forming associations with partners or “Guests” to create “an
event within the event.” These “Guests” are being called upon to
resonate with the approach of the participating galleries and with the
works of the artists on exhibit.
Thus, some galleries are currently setting up an exhibition program linked with famous
architects, designers, renowned chefs, writers, musicians, cinematographers, fashion
creators… in order to establish parallels between different fields of creation and to reflect
the transversality of artistic experiences. Some other galleries are in touch with collectors,
foundations, museums, contemporary art or antique galleries in France or abroad to
showcase at ARTPARIS+GUESTS the best of modern and contemporary art.
And about one third of the galleries will dedicate their stand to a solo show.
From November 2009 to March 2010, ARTPARIS+GUESTS will be raising the curtain roughly
twice a month on special gallery projects...
The Parisian gallery Lahumière will present a “1950-2010 retrospective, 60 years of
constructed art in France,” a project implemented in sync with the Museum im
Kulturspeicher of Würzburg in Germany. “Thanks to a donation from a major German
collector, Peter C. Ruppert, this museum boasts the
largest collection of constructed art in the world…
Since we have been exhibiting masters of constructed and
geometric abstraction, such as Victor Vasarely (1906-
1997), Alberto Magnelli(1888-1971), or Aurélie Nemours
(1910-2005) and Auguste Herbin(1882-1960), since 1963,
we feel we are justifiably in harmony with Museum im
Kulturspeicher. Which is why, for ARTPARIS+GUESTS,
the museum is lending us works by a student of Arp and
Herbin, Günter Fruhtrunk (1923-1982), which we will be
showing alongside our ’traditional artists’... not to mention
the contemporary generation with Hans Jِrg Glattfelder
(1939-), Charles Bézie (1934) and Henri Prosi (1936)
who portray the perennial presence of constructed art,”
explain Anne and Jean-Claude Lahumière.
