Art en Capital is back or a new edition from February 12 to 16, 2020 in the Grand Palais nave. An event you don't want to miss especially if you love contemporary art.
Once again the Nave of the Grand Palais is to host Art Capital. For 5 days, you can discover the work of 2,000 artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, architects, engravers and so on…) at this great art fair. Open to the general public since 2006, the fair brings together artists from all different backgrounds and has become a reference point for the promotion of the current art scene. Art en Capitale strengthens links between the general public, the artists and the galleries.
Many different fairs are held as part of this event, including the Drawing and Water Painting Fair which presents works in pastel, charcoal, pencil, watercolour and even silk paper sculptures.
The new Grand Palais
Built for the Exposition Universelle of 1900 and dedicated "by the Republic to the glory of French art", the Grand Palais was listed as a historical monument in 2000. Its architecture, mixing classicism and modernity, its exceptional dimensions (70,000 m2) and its remarkable volumes (the biggest Nave of Europe with 13,500 m2 of surface area, crowned with a glass roof of 17,500 m2) make it an outstanding cultural and heritage site. The 1900 building has not been renovated, with the exception of the Nave in the early 2000s, the South-East Gallery in 2011 and the Salon d’Honneur in 2012.
In December 2020, the Grand Palais will fully close to begin its transformation, and in spring 2023, the New Grand Palais will welcome you in a monument that has been restored to the beauty and boldness of its original design! From 14 April to 14 May 2018, the Rmn – Grand Palais associated users and visitors of the venue with the restructuring of this emblematic monument.
