2011 promises to be an important year for the Parcours des mondes which is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
10 years of work and development to take the event to a high-standing international level.
And it has been 10 years that have seen traditional non-european arts achieve wide-ranging acceptance and popularity and Paris develop its role as the international capital of Tribal Art.
Like every year, some of the worlds best international dealers will settle next to their famous parisian colleagues in order to propose masterpieces of african, oceanic, asian and american art as well as beautiful ethnographical objects, of a more affordable price, to collectors and enthusiasts who gather annually from all over the world.
The success of this dynamic outdoor fair is clear from the good media coverage, and the ever growing and more international attendance and can be explained by the good health of the tribal arts market, a stronger interest amongst art lovers in general for these lesser known arts, the extra efforts made by the dealers to propose interesting thematic shows with high quality objects and, the vigilance of the organizers in terms of quality and vetting of the exhibited pieces.
