Paris Internationale 6: October 21—29

12 rue de Montyon, 75009 Paris

In 2020, Paris Internationale changed format to take the form of an exhibition in a vacant superette located in the centre of Paris. The exhibition was curated by Claire Le Restif.

In the wake of a global crisis that has considerably reduced access to art and disrupted meaningful exchange, Paris Internationale decided to embrace the many complexities of our present moment and face these challenges dynamically and with optimism. Owing to the flexibility and reactivity of our small structure, we quickly adapted to this new context and proposed a new format. Instead of the art fair, the 2020 edition of Paris Internationale took the form of an exhibition.

This year was also marked by a complete redesign of our website. In addition to SuperSalon, Paris Internationale hosted its first ever online edition, thus providing those who could not be present in person with an opportunity to share the experience. In addition to throughly documenting SuperSalon, we also gave each of our exhibiting galleries the possibility to present additional artworks and ample contextual material offering an additional window into the practices of the artists they work with.

Online Walk-Through

Claudia Paetzold is presenting her highlights of this first online edition of Paris Internationale.

A graduate of the Sorbonne, Harvard and Christie’s Education, Ms. Paetzold, founder of CP Art Advisory Ltd., has been an art advisor for more than ten years, building private collections and foundations and providing consultancy services to a myriad of art organizations including Art Basel. In her curatorial projects she focuses on art as a catalyst for awareness and evolution, developing original concepts which integrate contemporary art, ancestral knowledge, technological innovation and applied sustainability and culminate in new ways of creating and experiencing art. Earlier this year she received the prestigious LCD Award for Best New Culture Destination of the Year 2020 in Latin America for the project SFER IK in Tulum, Mexico, for which she served as artistic director for two years.


Curated by renowned curator Claire Le Restif and titled SuperSalon, this exhibition replacing the usual fair, included a focused selection of works made by artists represented by our exhibitors. SuperSalon took place in a vacant superette in the centre of Paris, the title was chosen to evoke both the spirit of the 19th century Parisian art salons and the corner supermarket hosting the event.

This 6th edition welcomed 26 galleries hailing from 14 countries and 3 non-profit spaces.
