PARIS—From November 9–13, 2022, the Carrousel du Louvre is hosting Fine Arts Paris & La Biennale, a new generalist art fair resulting from the merger of two events, Fine Arts Paris, which was established five years ago, and the not-to-be-missed Biennale des Antiquaires, founded by André Malraux in 1956.
This initial event will feature the participation of nearly ninety galleries, including six specializing in non-European art. Among these, three are based in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district of Paris, so they will only have to cross the Seine to offer collectors a selection of tantalizing works. These are Galerie Flak, Galerie Anthony Meyer, and Galerie Monbrison.
They will be joined by two prestigious galleries based in Brussels—those of Didier Claes as well as of Patrick and Ondine Mestdagh—and by one from Barcelona, Montagut Gallery.
