Launched in 2015, Paris Internationale’s public programs facilitate exchanges and conversations about art between members of the international art worlds. With events held in informal and unconventional formats, the public programs take place throughout the fair and are accessible for free. This year, the talk program imagined and moderated by Anissa Touati «Process as Resistance, Resilience & Regeneration» is conceived as a way to offer the public access to a broad range of speakers in an intimate platform that promotes productive discussion. The talks were supported by Fluxus and take place at level -1 within the exhibition Maintenant !, an artistic project conceived in collaboration with Cnap - Centre nationale des art plastiques.
Paris Internationale is also renewing Daily Dérives, its program of conversations led by emblematic personalities of the art world. These highlights took the form of guided tours inside Paris Internationale 2022. Truthful to the Situationist meaning of the dérive, Paris Internationale encourages the expression of personal points of view and hope for an intimate experience for individuals who “let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they found there” (Guy Debord).
