For art and design lovers from across the world, the Biennale des Antiquaires has been a must-attend event for more than half a century and quintessentially representative of the French « art de vivre ». So, if you’re wondering what to do in Paris during the next month of September, here’s a suggestion! Read on and see what to find at La Biennale Paris 2017.
When: September 11-17 2017
Where: Grand Palais, Paris
The 2017 Paris Biennial has initiated a partnership with « Chantilly Arts and Elegance Richard Mille » which will, on September 10, 2017, present the most world’s most beautiful historical and collectors’ cars, along with couturiers’ creations, automobile clubs and the French Art of Living, at the Domaine de Chantilly. This partnership with the Peter Auto Society will create a powerful synergy between the two events, which share common values and a common audience.
Christopher Forbes, President of The Paris Biennial and of the Biennial Commission (which includes 6 ex-officio members from the SNA Board and 8 other qualified personalities), and Mathias Ary Jan, President of the SNA, present the first list of participants validated by the Biennial Commission (on page 11) to participate in the grand event to be held under the Nave of the Grand Palais. A total of 95 exhibitors, including 36 international exhibitors, have
already confirmed their participation. The first key figures from The 2017 Paris Biennale:
° 95 exhibitors;
° 36 international exhibitors, or 1/3 of those exhibiting;
° 85% of exhibitors from 2016 have renewed their confidence in the Biennial.
The general layout of The Paris Biennial is optimized to enhance visitor comfort and the discovery of exhibitors and their works. The size of the aisles throughout the three main alleys has been balanced to ensure that the visitor enjoys the same comfort in each and that every exhibitor can present objects or works in the very best conditions. The whole of this ephemeral museum that is The Paris Biennial is concentrated under the Nave of the Grand Palais in order to avoid the disparity of access that might have been problematic if the event took place in the Salon d’Honneur on the first floor. Echoing this spirit of renewal, the Barbier-Mueller exhibition will be presented in two large rooms located at each end of the Nave, thus encouraging circulation throughout the space.
