Price Check! Here’s What Sold—and For How Much—at the Inaugural Edition of Art Basel’s Paris+ Fair


The dust has settled after the debut edition of Art Basel’s Paris+ fair and, by most accounts, it was successful. Early fears about collectors and galleries potentially skipping one of the month’s events, either Frieze London (which wrapped up two weeks ago) or Paris+, were seemingly unfounded, as the turnout at both fairs, and the star-studded events that surrounded them, were very well-attended.

According to the fair, Paris+ welcomed 40,000 visitors over the course of both restricted-access VIP and public days, including French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte. Galleries were effusive in their praise for the event, including David Zwirner, who reported sales of more than $11 million on the first day, “certainly numbers that we weren’t able to achieve here in Paris in the past,” as he told Artnet News.

The blue-chip dealer is probably referring to the lackluster sales he bemoaned after the last edition of FIAC, which came just before Art Basel announced its coup to take over as reigning fair of the capital, and in FIAC’s old digs no less.

All in all, the numbers are impressive, if not quite mind-boggling, which tracks with the current economic climate.

Below, as always, is our roundup of reported sales at the fair, converted to USD for ease of reading. Bear in mind that only galleries who choose to share figures are included in this list, so it’s disproportionately skewed toward those who, well, sold the most stuff.
