FAB Paris launches “Call for new talents” ahead of its much-anticipated third edition. Young art dealers from around the world invited to exhibit at the landmark Grand Palais 22-27 November 2024.

FAB Paris announces a new initiative providing young art dealers from around the world with a unique opportunity to participate in the third edition of France’s premier art fair for fine art & antiques. Taking place from 22 until 27 November 2024, the fair will bring together 110 internationally renowned galleries at FAB Paris’ permanent venue, the newly restored Grand Palais.

The selected art dealers will be invited to exhibit for free* in a dedicated space staged by Victor Bonnivard, the young French interior architect known for his high-profile renovations of historic buildings. Prospective candidates are expected to meet two requirements: being in business for less than five years and propose one or two artworks or objects estimated at less than €25,000.

Applications will need to be submitted by email to jeunestalents@fabparis.com before 28 June 2024 and include a C.V., a text of 1,000 characters presenting the gallery/dealership, alongside images and descriptions of the objects which the candidates would like to exhibit. In case of successful application, the objects will undergo the usual vetting process ahead of the fair.

The exhibition will be curated by the art historian Carole Blumenfeld, Mathieu Deldicque, Director of the Musée Condé, Château de Chantilly and art patron and collector Cécilia Hottinguer.

Supported by Louis de Bayser, President of FAB Paris and the fair’s director Hélène Mouradian, this new initiative follows the success of last year’s “French new talent” stand which saw five young dealers presenting objects estimated at less than €10,000.

Louis de Bayser, President of FAB Paris says: “FAB Paris was created by art dealers with the key mission to support the fine art and antique trade. Cultivating a new generation of art dealers is essential to the vitality of the market and we hope that this initiative will provide young talents from far and near with an opportunity to exhibit in a legendary venue, alongside some of today’s most eminent and experienced gallerists”.

*All the insurance, transport and photography costs will be at the exhibitors’ expense.
