Salon “Art en Capital” 2014, (Paris)

THE EXHIBITION OF THE SALON “ART EN CAPITAL” 2014

Salon14-1In the 9th showing, Art en Capital combines four historical exhibitions dedicated to the fine arts under the glass roof the Grand Palais: the Salon Comparaisons, Société des Artistes Français (the Union of French Artists), Société des Artistes Indépendants (Society of Independent Artists) and the Salon du Dessin et de la peinture à l’eau (Drawing and Watercolour Salon); these exhibitions have remained true to their artistic line of freedom, independence, and openness to all forms of expression and culture. This respect for tradition gives a broad panorama of contemporary art, and is a great showcase for the artists represented at the show, both known and new, French or foreigners in this beautiful Grand Palais, in the beating heart of the capital. The audience meets every year for this event. I am confident that this new exhibition will be held with the same success.

This year, the Union of Artists of France introduced the 225 edition of their Salon. These many years shows the relevance and vitality of our union. This year, our exhibition showcases about 700 contemporary artists selected by a jury in the categories of painting, sculpture, graphics, architecture and photography. Different tendencies, different nationalities, freelance artists, open-minded and talented will present their work in this edition of 225. Our past is noted by the names of the most prestigious artists and it gives us the necessary stable foundation to go into the future. Spurious oscillations of the “art market” should not diminish the strength that we represent on a real art stage. Our presence in the Grand Palais from year to year is the best proof of this, for artists, for visitors and for professionals of the art world. At the beginning of the exhibition, we give tribute to the artists of World War I, years 1914-18. During these 4 years our society had lost 120 artists. The Union of Artists of France presides in 2014 over this show. This event must pass comparably to our hopes, enthusiasm, energy and talent, which the artists of our union invested in the success of this exhibition, Art en Capital 2014.

President of the Union of Artists of France

In 2014, Art en Capital opens at Grand Palais for the ninth consecutive year. The exhibition collects about 2,500 artists in all areas. As always with great enthusiasm we take this exhibition, which lasts five days, in the Grand Palais, an architectural gem with a unique and multifaceted world. Like an echo of history in the same place, where for a long time art galleries were held in the 19th century, Art en Capital follows the traditions. In the same manner it is important for the Grand Palais to create different exposures, it is a monument on the stage of world art, as a home for creative people. Through such activities the Grand Palais familiarizes many people with contemporary art. This building also gladly accepts all those who epitomize the dynamism and vitality of the arts in France. Forty thousand visitors come, to discover all this and to support the artists of the exhibition. Art en Capital – the cultural event of the autumn which is impossible to just pass by.

President of the Reunin of National Museums – Grand Palais
