Parcours des Mondes in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris, September 8 – 13, 2020*
Parcours des mondes will celebrate its 19th anniversary, September 8 – 13, 2020*, at Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris. This is the largest international art fair for tribal art, Asian art and archaeological artefacts. The iconic Beaux-Arts district will be the backdrop for this well-established and highly regarded week-long event which brings together galleries from all over the world. Some 49 art dealers, 41 specializing in tribal art, 3 in Asian art, 4 in archaeological artefacts and one bookseller, are expected to participate.
Norberto Izquierdo, a collector who is passionate about tribal art, has been selected as the 19th Parcours des Mondes’ honorary president. Izquierdo has nurtured his passion for ‘Arts du Lointain’ (art from remote places) for more than ten years.
“I’ll never forget my first Parcours des Mondes. It represented the first time that I felt confident enough to cross the threshold of some of the top tribal art galleries. Ever since that time, more than 10 years ago, I’ve had a renewed interest in art from far-flung places. The Beaux-Arts district in Saint- Germain-des-Prés takes on a very special, almost exhilarating atmosphere. It’s a great opportunity to meet art lovers, collectors, experts and dealers from all over the world, in some cases, for the first time.” — Norberto Izquierdo
