Hotel Apollinaire - Paris Montparnasse


Art Capital" exhibition at the Grand Palais

"Art Capital" or the largest gathering of artists in France. From February 12 to 16, 2020, more than 2,000 artists will welcome you to the nave of the Grand Palais. The opportunity to admire an exceptional and most complete showcase of today's artistic production.

It is the encounter that is at the heart of this event. Meeting between the artists on one side and the public on the other. They are painters, sculptors, engravers, plastic artists, photographers, architects, they come from all horizons, from all trends. Some have already made a name for themselves, others are still young shoots. For five days, they exhibit their creations and play the game of exchange with the visitors.

Visitors are numerous (nearly 40,000 each year). Actors of the art world, gallery owners, collectors, professionals or simply the general public, all share the love of art. But not necessarily the same art forms. This is why, in the historical tradition of art fairs, Art Capital offers four themed fairs: the Salon des artistes français, the Salon des artistes indépendants, the Salon Comparaisons and the Salon du dessin et de la peinture à l'eau.

Art fairs have been around for a long time, and many famous artists have exhibited there. On the fringe of the official show will soon be born the Salon des indépendants, then the Comparisons show, in response to a need for freedom and openness.

Today, the combination of four trade shows in the same prestigious setting ensures a plurality, quality and dynamism that make the success of the event.

One last piece of advice: don't miss this 2020 edition of Art Capital, the last one before the Grand Palais closes for renovations.

The Apollinaire hotel invites you to take a walk in the very heart of the current creation :
