Paris. A new contemporary art fair, Cutlog, is launching in Paris at the same time as FIAC, France’s International Contemporary Art Fair. A FIAC satellite fair in the vein of Slick and Showoff, Cutlog will take place at the Bourse du Commerce, a former stock exchange building, from 22-25 October. Around 30 emerging galleries are participating, each paying €5,200 for a 17 sq. m booth. Bruno Hadjadj—artist, filmmaker, interior designer and retailer—is organising the fair. “It’s not a fair like Liste in Basel, which is focused on young artists; at Cutlog you’ll be able to discover the work of even 95-year-old artists whose work isn’t that well known,” says Hadjadj. “People that we are not used to seeing on the art market, both artists and galleries, can express themselves. I expect that people will continue to invest in art despite the economic situation.” A third of the galleries are French, including Artfact Paris, and two thirds are foreign, including Kwadrat in Berlin, Galerie Gavriel in Bremen and Jarach Gallery in Venice. A Mercedes shuttle for collectors and professionals is being organised to and from the Grand Palais and the Cour Carrée du Louvre, FIAC’s two venues. Following the preview on 21 October, there is a brunch for professionals on 22 October.
