“Let’s stay united”, Emmanuel Perrotin launches a home collaborative fair

In the absence of the major international art fairs postponed due to the pandemic! Emmanuel Perrotin initiated an innovative collaborative project by inviting his colleagues to invest in his Saint-Claude space in Paris.

A temporary response to the crisis or the bringer of a fundamental trend for the contemporary art world? 

“Let’s stay united.” This is the wish expressed by Emmanuel Perrotin when he invited 26 Parisian galleries to present a selection of their artists in his premises. From May 23rd to August 14th. A total of four consecutive presentations by groups of six or seven galleries. Eeach lasting two weeks, will follow one another in the Saint-Claude space in the Marais, which will be open free of charge to collectors and the public. 

After the announcement of the quarantine, the famous Parisian gallery owner very quickly felt that there would be a need for unity and events in this crisis.
In order to support artistic creation, Emmanuel Perrotin sets up this collective project. Which aims to show the vitality and quality of the French contemporary art scene. 

“In this period of upheaval, it is important to recall the foundations of our profession and our commitment to ever greater diversity, openness and culture. Each exhibition visit or gallery discovery brings its share of surprises. It’s a much more open and collaborative world than it used to be, and we’re delighted,” says Emmanuelle Perrotin.   

Even if digital technology may have been a palliative during the confinement, for Emmanuel Perrotin, viewing rooms and other virtual initiatives will never replace exhibitions that allow gallery owners to share their works with the greatest number of people.
