The fair will include an ‘In Real Life’ platform, which will celebrate an emerging generation of artists. Curator Xiaorui Zhu-Nowell will attend the fair to plan the Curatorial Platform. This programme aims to celebrate an emerging generation of artists, such as those who create digital art and engages with the challenges of contemporary art practise.

The Special Projects section of the fair will present a show of artist Chinese Qiu Zhijie, who is known for his calligraphy, ink paintings, photography, video, installation and performance art. Zhijie’s artwork often suggests struggles between forces of destiny and self assertation, as well as themes of social fragmentation and transience.

The fair will take place at 9 Avenue Hoche, Paris 8e.
