In 2015, we continue to experience the cultural momentum that has engulfed and, still today, radiates our territory. To keep this momentum is to rely on the belief that art and creativity are unifying areas of emotion and reflection, as extraordinary as valuable to live together in a world where isolationism has taken over ... Keeping this momentum alive is also testifying to how the eyes of artists on the world was always relevant and fitting, and even more in our time when critical thinking and time for analysis are being undermined.
More than just an art fair: A place of exchanges, a launching pad for projects whose strong emulation made it the darling of professional merchants, passionated visitors and exhibitors aficionados. They all come back in search for the ferments of a new discovery, multiply contacts and transactions beyond the undeniable friendliness that presides over the event.
The art at SM'ART doesn't only expose: It invites itself to the celebration combining culture, Epicureanism and avant-garde. At SM'ART, art sharpness the exchanges and highlights new perspectives. The success of previous occurrences is of course determinant.
In agreement with the City of Aix en Provence, we deliberately moved back The Art Fair of a week. Many artists told us that they wanted to expose at SM’ART and at the Art Fair Paris/Bastille. These two exhibitions were on the same time and that’s why we decided to organize the Art fair from May 7th until May 11th.
The 10th edition promises good prospects with a very innovative programming and good vibes for 2015. More than an Art Fair, this is a Contemporary Art rite that will open the Park’s garden gate.200 artists, painters, sculptors, photographs, visual artists and video makers, will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Art Fair that was able since the last ten years to gather together : people, galleries and artists came from Europe and beyond.
