A Sector for Young Galleries and Emerging Talents


Purposefully placed at the very heart of the Grand Palais, “Promises” will host 14 young galleries from Abidjan, Brussels, Lima, Lisbon, Sofia, Marseilles and Paris, many of which will be exhibiting at Art Paris for the first time this year. The galleries will explore rarely represented art scenes, from Europe – in particular Bulgaria at Structura Gallery (Sofia); Africa, with 31 Project, Afikaris, Galerie Véronique Rieffel (Paris/Abidjan) and Septieme Gallery; and Latin America, represented by Galerie Younique (Lima/Paris). The galleries will each be presenting between one and three emerging artists – and benefit from financial sponsorship from the fair.
