Paris+ par Art Basel is officially becoming Art Basel Paris. The expanded third edition of the show takes place from October 18 to 20, with VIP Preview Days on October 16 and 17. The rebrand coincides with the show’s relocation to the newly renovated Grand Palais, as well as the recent announcement of exhibitors and new event highlights.

The decision to rebrand Art Basel Paris was made in collaboration with Rachida Dati, France’s Minister of Culture, as well as Art Basel’s local partners and event stakeholders. These include the French Ministry of Culture, the City of Paris, GrandPalaisRMN, and participating art galleries. In a statement, Art Basel explained that the new name “reinforces its commitment to the city and its dynamic cultural ecosystem, leveraging the impact of the global Art Basel brand to further bolster the Parisian fair, underscore its ambition, and amplify its resonance in Paris and the world.”


194 galleries from 42 countries—including 51 first-time participants and 64 galleries operating in France—are set to participate in the 2024 edition of the show. The expanded lineup will showcase a diverse variety of both established and emerging artists. Director Clément Delépine said, “The impressive list of exhibitors participating in our 2024 show highlights the fair’s leading role as a dynamic platform for galleries, as well as Paris’s position as cornerstone of the global art market.”

The 2024 edition of Art Basel Paris is the first fair to take place in the Grand Palais after three years of renovations. Originally constructed for the 1900 Paris Exposition, the Grand Palais is among the most important and interesting exhibition venues in the world. According to Art Basel Paris’s statement, the new venue “represents both a celebration and a culmination of Art Basel’s deep connection with the French capital.”

The Grand Palais is equipped to welcome an additional 40 galleries compared to Art Basel’s 2023 Paris show. The maximum floorspace of each gallery’s stand will also increase from 66 to 77 square meters. Additionally, the Grand Palais facilitates the inclusion of exciting new features, including Premise, which centers on art made before 1900. One of the nine galleries participating in the inaugural edition of Premise is Galeria Nara Roesler, which is curating works by the late Brazilian artists Tomie Ohtake and Chico Tabibuia. “It is our way to help broaden the canon,” Delépine said of Premise. “We have a responsibility to be a vitrine for cutting-edge conversations.”

Alongside the Premise sector, Oh La La! is a new initiative with a “playful itinerary” during which participating galleries will present rarely seen work on designated days. Additionally, the renamed Emergence sector of the show, formerly known as Galeries Émergentes, will shine a spotlight on emerging galleries and artists. An exciting variety of freely accessible public programming is also planned in conjunction with the show. A complete list of these events and their locations throughout the city will be revealed in coming months.
