« Nous avons imaginé un événement qui célèbre la force et la vitalité créative des artistes de la matière du monde entier. Ce moment unique, sublime les savoir-faire, révèle la création contemporaine et inspire les talents de demain. Révélations nourrit les débats autour des enjeux actuels d’un secteur entier et projette à l’international l’image prestigieuse des métiers d’art. »
Excellence, avant-gardism, and eclecticism are the values carried forth by the Révélations biennial. It is a time for privileged interactions and for discovering tomorrow’s trends in an exceptional setting, the Grand Palais that plans to reopen to public by 2025 spring.
Organised and held by Ateliers d’Art de France since 2013, Révélations asserts the identity and role of creators in society and in the global creative market. It offers a unique opportunity for fine craft professionals to seek out their audiences, celebrate their boldness through unprecedented works, and showcase their daily commitment.
Révélations is a major economic event for International contemporary creation. The prestigious biennial, reflecting the sector’s diversity, ensures creators the presence of key decision-makers and prescribers to enrich their network and generate new orders.
3,000 pieces will be revealed to the public in an unbiased way. This is an invitation to go behind the scenes of fine craft workshops and to meet the creators.
To ensure the excellence and quality of the works displayed, Révélations appoints an Artistic Steering Committee to select the creators who will be exhibiting. The panel is made up of 12 representatives from the entire sector of contemporary creation: creators, gallery owners, prescribers (designers, architects, etc.), museum directors, collectors, and so on. The committee gathers for three sessions to examine applications.
Reflecting the vitality of international contemporary creation, Révélations consecrates Paris as the world epicentre for the creative universe for 5 days.
For its 6th edition, Révélations choose Québec as nation of honour. Québec that crossed the Atlantic once again after a successful first appearance at the 2019 Banquet. The direct and privileged links that bind France and Quebec are founded on a shared history, a shared language and common values, as well as strong cultural ties that permeate the exchanges, and a shared vision of fine crafts, which are a fundamental aspect of both our identities.
