Created in 2013 by Eve de Medeiros, DDESSINPARIS is exclusively dedicated to contemporary drawing. For more than 10 years, the fair’s mission has been to promote both emerging and more established artists by inviting a dozen French and international galleries. Over the years, DDESSIN has established itself as a key event of the drawing week in Paris. The fair takes place at the Molière – a private hotel located between the Palais de la Bourse and the BNF – whose friendly, non-partitioned space lends itself perfectly to wandering and whose zenithal light from the glass roof highlights the works presented. Moreover, its intimate format allows to create real discussions between gallery owners, artists, collectors and amateurs. Finally, at each edition since its creation, an artist is awarded the DDESSINPARIS Prize.
