Presented at the Maison Rouge, MAD is a new fair dedicated to any form of multiplied art objects. The first edition of this event took place in May 2015. It received more than 6000 visitors, gathered 70 international publishers in 1200m2 and had a 3-day program of performances, concerts, debates on editorial trends in contemporary art.
MAD#2 will take place on Friday 30th September, Saturday 1st October and Sunday 2nd October 2016 (vernissage on Thursday 29th September) and will gather a panorama of today's editorial practices, from fanzines to signed multiples: prints, multiples, books, movies, artist's records...
MAD#2 will take over the entire space of one of the most emblematic Parisian venues for contemporary creation, the Maison Rouge / Fondation Antoine de Galbert, which explores the diversity of current artistic research through major international private collections. MAD#2 will bring together 70 international publishers (galleries, publishers, artists, institutions) in a vast space (1200 m2 of exhibition space, a performance room and a café). Much more than a fair, MAD is an exhibition of each participant's projects. Breaking with the aesthetics of the "stand" and the fairs, the space will be open to the fluid circulation of visitors and will highlight the displays. Encouraging "curatorial" presentations by exhibitors and dialogue with the public, the space at the Maison Rouge is designed for the occasion by artist Stéphane Magnin based on his Do It Yourself library. Exhibitors will be able to choose from a line of "open source" furniture made by the artist in cardboard and wood (tables, chairs, sofas, bookcases, etc.).
These days will be accompanied by a series of meetings, artistic performances and debates on editorial practice in contemporary art with artists, graphic designers, public collection managers, publishers, collectors, researchers and booksellers from all over the world.
Curatorial direction: Sylvie Boulanger, director of the CNEAI = (Centre National Édition Art Image) Michael Woolworth, director of the Atelier Woolworth.
