Designing Hope at ArtParis ArtFair 2012
Since 2006, Art Paris supports Designing Hope by offering the opportunity to present at the fair, its project involving contemporary artists for HIV prevention campaign. In 2012, ArtParis Artfair welcomes the NGO for an art project in collaboration with Revue Noire.
A LONG TERM SUPPORT
Since it was installed at the Grand Palais in 2006, ARTPARIS wished to support the action of Designing Hope and thus mark its commitment to the initiative of the NGO, bringing together humanitarian action and the world of of art.
This support has been strengthened since 2010 with the organization of the annual gala dinner for the benefit of Designing Hope at the opening of the fair.
Curated by Revue Noire, the works presented at the booth of Designing Hope during ArtParis Artfair 2012, have been donated by African artists in support of the cause.
Founded in 1991, Revue Noire is not only a magazine, it’s also a publisher of reference books and reserved editions and a gallery called “La Maison Revue Noire” which represents mainly artists from the African continent. Since its creation, Revue Noire is committed to great African causes, including the fight against AIDS.
