THE SALON AROUND THE WORLD
Since 1906, foreign artists have been accepted into the Salon d’Automne.
Thanks to its rich history, taught in many art schools around the world, the Salon has successfuly managed to preserve the esteem of international artists willing to show their art in Paris. In return, many exhibitions are organised around the world under the Salon’s prestigious banner.
Thanks to the friendship between the two painters Seiji Togo and Francois Baron-Renouard in the 1970’s, the Salon d’Automne has built a strong collaboration and partnership with the Japan International Artists Society, and its president, Toshifumi Magori.
Over the years, the CAEA has become a full-fledged division at the Salon d’Automne, presenting an important selection of outstanding Japanese works each year in Paris.
In exchange, more than 65 painters, photographers, illustrators and engravers selected at the Salon d’Automne are invited annually to exhibit their work at the National Art Center in Tokyo.
In 2015, a dynamic and new artistic exchange with Belarus was organized jointly with Belgazprombank and the Embassy of Belarus in France, and thanks to the initiative of the Minsk-born Franco-Belorussian painter Elena Makovka and the president of the Emergence section Michel Dankner. The result was the Salon d’Automne of Minsk which took place that same year.
Last year, the paintings of a delegation of Belarusian painters were exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in Paris. In exchange, French painters have exhibited their work at the Museum of Art in Minsk.
Paphos, the 3rd largest city in Cyprus and the European Capital of Culture for 2017 will host a collective work by 70 artists selected by the Salon d’Automne together with 30 cypriot artists (20 grec cypriot and 10 turc cypriot for a symbolic exhibition in December 2017.
Thanks to the generous initiative of Michèle Ansermet-Papadopoulos, painter and member of the Salon d’Automne, the theme of this exhibition is ‘the diptych’. This theme symbolises the reconciliation of the two parts that constitute the island. This unique artistic event is supported by the French Institute and the Republic of Cyprus.
The artworks will stay in Cyprus for a second exhibition in Nicosie, capital of Cyprus next mid-march 2018, for the Francophone days, in l’Institut Français and in our partner, the COLLECTION GALLERY.
In continuing our partnership with the artist’s association in the province of Shaanxi in Xi’An in China, presented at the Salon for the past three years, the Salon d’Automne presented the work of 175 artists selected in the sections of painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, architecture, digital art and environmental art to make up a collection presented on the occasion of the inauguration of the Xi’An International Children’s Art Museum, along with a previously unseen encounter with 100 Chinese paintings.
The delegation of the Salon d’Automne participated in four conferences in several school and universities in the province, which allowed for the occasion to meet and exchange with professors and students alike while discovering studios.
Inaugurated by a splendid preview uniting personalities and media from the region, the exhibition was on view from May 13th to 28th, 2019.
