For its 2023 edition, Paris+ par Art Basel will increase its presence beyond the Grand Palais Éphémère, featuring a program that comprises three exhibitions, two monumental outdoor installations, and a series of talks and debates, presented in six iconic locations across the French capital.
These locations include the Jardin des Tuileries – Domaine national du Louvre, the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins des Beaux-Arts de Paris, and the Place Vendôme – all of which already hosted projects in 2022 as well as three new venues: the parvis de l’Institut de France will host a monumental textile sculpture by Sheila Hicks, the Palais d’Iéna will host a duo exhibition by Daniel Buren and Michelangelo Pistoletto, and the Centre Pompidou, which will welcome the show’s Conversations program.
A multimedia installation by Jessica Warboys will be on view at the Chapelle des Petits-Augustins des Beaux-Arts de Paris and a five-meter-high aluminium sculpture by Urs Fischer will be exhibited on the Place Vendôme. Curated for the second year by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou, the show’s Conversations program will unfold at – and be presented in collaboration with – the Centre Pompidou. With the addition of new venues and a citywide public program, Paris+ par Art Basel will therefore further expand its offering and footprint in the French capital, as well as its collaborations with local cultural institutions and the City of Paris.
