Be ready because on March 24th a new event will open in Paris: the DDessinParis, Paris Contemporary Drawing Fair.
For 2017’s edition, the event is richer in initiatives animating Atelier Richelieu 60 in Paris. Until 26th of March, this precious location will host artists from all over the world going to Paris for the 5th edition of DDessinParis to celebrate its anniversary at the best.
There are going to be about 20 galleries both French and foreign with acclaimed and emerging artists.
The DDessinParis prize will be attributed by a jury of experts composed by professionals from the world of Art and culture. Thanks to this prize, the winner will stay for one month abroad with a 1000 euro grant. We would like to point out the Illustrators Corner displaying works by Philippe Caillaude, Margot Denvers, Clémence Monnet, Popy-Loly de Monteysson, Anne Touquet.
It is worth mentioning an important and interesting project in Angouleme that is linked to DDessinParis: Passerelles by the Director of the International centre of comics and images, Pierre Lungheretti; Patric Clanet, Director of EESI, Ecole Européenne Superiéure de l’image. A special thank also to Catherine Mallet, Director of the cultural space Les Modillons, Espace évenementiel et culturel acting as Commissioner. One can undertake an interesting itinerary comprising contemporary design and comics.
Many young talents will participate trying to explore new graphic ways in Angouleme. This French village, in the district of Charente and capital of this region, is known for the International Festival of Comics and this year it celebrates its 44th edition.
Countless conferences are scheduled in this event such as “Drawing in the digital era” dealing with some issues about drawing in the digital era. In fact, the latter is not only dots and lines but allows artists to express their own creativity in different ways, distant from conventional ones.
You can’t miss this event especially because this year five peculiar drawings by François Andes, Director and founder of the show Coup de coeur DDessin 2017, will be displayed.
