The Salon de l’Art Abordable (The Affordable Art Exhibition) seeks to bring art to the masses in Paris. The event takes place from September 30th-October 2nd.
When it comes to describing art, many words come to mind: abstract, aesthetic, avant-garde…affordable? Well, that last one may not be used as often, but the team behind Le Grand Salon d’Art Abordable hopes to change that. The concept for the exhibition came from the idea that owning quality art should be possible for more people. Now in its 19th edition, the event features around 50 artists who are chosen by application. For three days, visitors can view more than 400 works of art and buy them for prices ranging from 50 to 5000 euros. The pieces are all originals that have been certified and signed.
The first edition of the event took place in 2009 in a period when both artists and galleries were suffering from the financial crisis. While trying to encourage the public to buy art again, the creators of the Salon de l’Art Abordable realized that many potential buyers viewed art as something expensive and out of reach. Through their event, they want to make art accessible to a larger market.
The exhibition will take place at art and cultural center La Bellevilloise, and all profit on the pieces sold will go exclusively to the artists (the Bellevilloise will not take a commission).
