PROMISES A SECTOR DEDICATED TO EMERGING ART AND GALLERIES

This section is dedicated to promoting 12 talented young galleries that are under six years of existence. This year brings a 100% international selection with galleries from Abidjan, Amsterdam, Bogota, Bratislava, Geneva, Lagos, London, Luanda or Rome. Also new this year, The L’art est vivant 2017 prize, in partnership with The Fine Art Collective, will be awarded to one of the artists presented by Promises.

L’art est vivant
L’art est vivant is a collective of enthusiasts and collectors who are passionate about the emerging contemporary art scene. They find motivation in cultural actions that serve the general interest, i.e. supporting creativity, accompanying the artist in the production stage and contributing to developing awareness of the work of budding artists, or those who are in the process of achieving public and institutional recognition.
