Dedicated exclusively to promoting artworks on paper and revealing the various forms of this rich and versatile medium, the Papier Fair is a key catalyst for the Canadian contemporary art market and constitutes a unique meeting ground for the greater public, art enthusiasts and professionals alike.
Organized annually by AGAC, the 2017 edition, which took place at Arsenal Contemporary Art from April 21 to 23, showcased 39 Canadian galleries and nearly 300 artists. AGAC took advantage of this huge space to offer an exceptional experience to gallerists and visitors.
For its 10th edition, Papier expanded its educational program by offering guests several free activities. Overall, six panel discussions and three guided tours were offered. The panel discussions addressed several leading edge topics, such as performance and curatorial work, digital art and art therapy.
