    Information

    Cutlog, a Parisian, cutting-edge contemporary art fair dedicated to promoting international emerging or established galleries which are supporting emerging artists, held its fourth edition from the 18th to the 21st of October 2012. The galleries of cutlog 2012 have presented artworks from their emerging artists, as well as the latest works from their established positions. cutlog is both an alternative and a complement to the other art fairs, focused on presenting under-the-radar galleries. It offers a platform to up and coming artists, as well as a bridge between galleries and established collectors. Held under the dome of the Bourse de Commerce, France’s historical equivalent of Wall Street, it is a skip and a jump away from the Grand Palais and the Louvre. There, in the circular, 1000 meter square room, it disrupts the typical, stern patterns of fairs and encourages a dialogue from galleries to visitors.

    Each year, it selects international and french galleries, offering a new visibility and a move away from Parisian art fairs. Since its kick-off four years ago, cutlog has steadily gathered the best selection of worldwide press, collectors, museum directors, curators and art lovers.

    Over 20 000 visitors have chosen to visit cutlog and its galleries, some established, some up and coming. Under the patronage of Madam Aurelie Filippetti, French Minister of Culture and Communication, supported by the Ile de France regional council and the City of Paris, cutlog welcomed a great number of collectors and institutions, both French and international.   Among the projects exhibited in the Bourse de Commerce’s square, were an installation by  french artist Quentin Armand, “Pussy!”, “Metamachine Fluxus”, by french group Labofactory, and “Small Garden” by Danish artist Martin Erik Andersen. Dan Miller customized a 2012 a-Class Mercedes.   “Urbanity” was the theme of the second Paris artist’s film festival, in partnership with the Observatoire de l’art contemporain. A part of the pre-selection was provided by the art center Le Fresnoy, National Studio of Contemporary Art.   Faithful to cutlog, the bank Pictet & Cie, main partner of the event, created the prize “cutlog Gallery” which rewarded the gallery L’Atelier (Berlin). ARTE states its determination in discovery and avant-garde. The ARTE/cutlog prize has been awarded to Oliver Bragg (E.G.P. Gallery, Paris-London).   Paris Regional Council will sponsor a three month residency in Paris.
