Event Details

Following the success of its first edition last May in Paris, MENART FAIR returns from the 19th to the 22nd of May, in the private mansion of the Cornette de Saint Cyr.

About twenty international galleries presenting artists from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrein, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Sultanate of Oman and Yemen, will highlight the potential, singularity and originality of the artistic scene of the ME.NA region, supported today by many museums and institutions.

Unseen in the West, this young art fair with a confidential format offers a journey through a demanding selection of more than fifty modern and contemporary artists, most of whom are recognised in their respective countries.

Galvanised by a first edition crowned by success in 2021, MENART FAIR Paris returns from the 19th to the 22nd May 2022, to present the best of modern and contemporary creation from the ME.NA (Middle East & North Africa) in the art capital.

As a key player in the discovery or rediscovery of artists from the Middle East and North Africa, MENART FAIR plays a leading role in the promotion of artists from these regions in Europe.

The objective of MENART FAIR is threefold: to fill the collector’s interest in the art of the Middle East & North Africa, with guidance on its history and market, to enable Western galleries to create bridges to new artists, and to provide artists from the Arab world with a unique opportunity to connect with international experts.

With a significant loyalty from its exhibitors (60%), MENART FAIR Paris welcomes 18 galleries from 12 countries in the private mansion of Cornette de Saint Cyr to bring together the different regions of the ME.NA.
