The Biennale at the Grand Palais; encountering art in all its forms
Published on 5 August 2019 in Events
It’s not by chance that the Biennale is also called The Universal Art Fair, as this event organised since 1962 by the Syndicat National des Antiquaires offers a cross section of the finest art from around the world from the last 6,000 years! Book your Paris break at the Hotel Les Plumes today to discover this fabulous art fair.
The immense diversity of the Biennale 2019
Where else could you find paintings by Old Masters alongside antique jewellery, ethnic sculptures and contemporary tapestries? Under the magnificent metal and glass roof of the Grand Palais you will discover the diversity of the collections of galleries and antique dealers via the carefully selected works exhibited. You will be able to dream in front of masterpieces affordable only by a privileged few but also have plenty of opportunities to acquire unique and beautiful objects of the past or recently created by artists who will gain acclaim in the future.
A window into a world of creativity
The Biennale has always aimed to show the dynamism of art from around the world. For each edition (the event has been annual since 2017) a pavilion hosts the work of a selected nation, preferably one whose artistic production is little-known. In 2019, the Kingdom of Bahrain is the guest of honour with superb exhibitions of heritage objects and old works but also the presentation of contemporary creations by talented Bahraini artists and artisans. To facilitate your visit, consider buying your tickets online on the Biennale website.
Paris holds a special place in the world of art. The Biennale puts this world of creativity within reach of the general public. Upon your arrival at the Hotel Les Plumes, we will be happy to give you all the information you need about this fascinating and inclusive art fair!
