The first District 13 – International Art Fair will be held from 26 – 30 September in Paris at Drouot, an iconic institution of art history. Located in the heart of the capital, District 13 offers the public a curated selection of international galleries and international renowned street artists.
District 13 finds its inspiration in the city’s 13th district, with a long history of supporting street art with Street Art 13, an open air museum led by Galerie Itinerrance and the Mayor of the 13th District, as well as the more recent project Tour 13 (covered here).
Opened in 1852 in Paris, Hotel Drouot is the world’s largest auction house. Over the years, this institution has forged a place as a focal point for contemporary art. Works from the greatest names throughout the history of art, including Picasso, Matisse, Braque and Dalí, have been sold under the hammer of Drouot’s auctioneers.
For the first time ever, Drouot will be hosting a fair dedicated to Urban Art – a movement that is undergoing a complete transformation and lies at the heart of the debate and future of contemporary art.
District 13 will host a series of events.
