Organized by Ateliers d'Art de France, the 1st edition of Révélations from 11 - 15 September 2013 welcomed 33,794 visitors, collectors, interior designers, professional buyers, gallery owners, consultants and art lovers, who gathered to meet these exceptional artists and crafts workers from France and abroad.
An economic and cultural event held over 5 days where craftsworkers, craft workshops, art galleries and outstanding manufacturers unveiled their creations and know-how under the nave of the Grand Palais in an elegant and remarkable scenography created by Adrien Gardere (museographer and designer of the Louvre-Lens).
In 2013, Révélations reached well beyond its borders, affirming its international dimension with Norway as the country of honour, as well as guests from South Korea, China, the United States, Italy, Japan and Portugal.
2015 will feature the craft professions of another country, remaining firmly committed to showcasing its creators.
