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.
Despite travel restrictions and strict sanitary protocols, we were fortunate to welcome over 4 000 visitors eager to experience art in person and thankful for our persistence. Paris Internationale 2020 was praised for its innovative and relevant approach by many journalists, art critics and curators, as well as museum directors.
