• SLICK PARIS FAIR 8th edition in October 24-27th

    1-VISUEL_SLICK_2013SLICK fair aims to bring together the vitality of younger galleries with that of more established galleries, working both with recognized artists and tomorrow’s high-potentials. For its 8th edition, SLICK Paris is setting up its fair by the Seine river, directly beside Alexandre III Bridge and only a few steps away from the FIAC, located at the Grand Pa­lais.  The proximity to the FIAC will allow art lovers to easily stroll between these two comple­mentary fairs, while granting SLICK a unique new Parisian location: 17,000 visitors are expected to visit the fair on the banks of the River Seine.


    IMG_1326Since its launch in 2006, SLICK has been seeking out talent in the international art scene in order to discover and reveal emerging and ambitious galleries less than fifteen years old and with artistic rigor.

    For the past two years, these young galleries have been presented side by side with more established galleries.  By bringing together these two generations of galleries and artists, SLICK aims to reveal all of the vitality of the international contemporary art scene, in an atmosphere that pro­motes exchanges and new discoveries.




    SLICK continues to put forward a selective group of 40 galleries, as well as 11 SLICK Projects produced especially for the fair by an artist and his gallery. 50% of French galleries and 50% international.

    Two new yorkan galleries will be featured the Michael Petronko Gallery, with two artists Neon, will be the underlying theme of both.  Anthony Mirial will exhibit photographs from his “Nus sacrés” series.  A single white neon bulb (in an underground parking garage) supplied the entirety of lighting for the “Nus sacrés” series.

    Eric Michel will exhibit actual neon work, including “La lumière parle” (visual) which was last seen in Le néon dans l’art des années 1940 à nos jours at La maison rouge.
