Variation Media Art Fair

Variation Paris is an art fair that welcomes singularities. Since its inception in 2014 by Art2M, its mission has been to extract media and technology works from the black box or the network and to recontextualize them in a white cube setting. That is to say, the display format that is familiar to collectors and institutions when they come to Paris for the third week of October, which is dedicated to contemporary art. In order to ensure that the works dialogue between each other, there are no stands At Variation. The other specificity of this fair resides in the fact that the displayed works were all selected in close collaboration with the artists and their galleries or agents. The idea behind this initiative is to finally foreground the plural digital practices of a singular contemporary art.
