The Salon de Normandy by The Community is an annual collaborative and interdisciplinary salon, offering a different model for the customary structure of art fairs. The salon will return for its second edition from the 22nd to the 25th of October 2020 in various spaces of the historical Normandy Hôtel, situated near the Louvre in Paris.
The Salon is a gathering of international projects, a community of galleries, exhibition spaces, art and fashion projects, publishers, and emerging music labels, among Paris’ art fair week in October. This year’s theme will focus on how the individual can reappraise and reduce environmental impact, especially during these uncertain times we are living in due to the global pandemic. In response to this theme, the Salon has cooperated with ‘Creative Sustainability’, a consultancy that offers aid to creatives and organizations to reduce environmental impact.
After careful consideration and in light of the safety requirements surrounding Covid-19, the Salon de Normandy will concentrate more on Paris and Europe. With this decision, The Community intends to offer the exhibition space for new and emerging talents, along with more established and experienced talents, which together can create a special and tender surrounding for visitors to experience. The Salon will include exhibitions, installations, live performances, and concerts.
The Community is a non-profit art institution; therefore, The Salon de Normandy is open to the public and free of charge.
