2022 Papier Art Fair: Flagship event of the cultural season


Contemporary art lovers, you will be happy to learn that the 2022 Papier Art Fair will take place from August 26 to 28. The latter is once again a presentation of the Contemporary Art Galleries Association (AGAC) and will happen, for its 15th edition, at the Grand Quay of the Port of Montréal.

2022 Papier Art Fair: A Complete Return!

Indeed, like many other events, Papier has seen its calendar disrupted by the pandemic over the past two years. After a virtual edition in June 2020 and a return to the Grand Quay in a hybrid format in November 2021, AGAC is looking forward to this summer edition, which will allow the Association to return to its usual spring time slot in 2023.

The Association plans to take advantage of the experience gained since its digital shift initiated in 2020 to improve the virtual aspect of the event and its online platform. It will be a great pleasure for AGAC and the galleries to reconnect physically and virtually with art lovers in August so that they can discover, acquire and admire an incredible selection of works.
