Meet Me in Paris | Prelude to Parcours des Mondes


B. Flowers

Parcours des Mondes International Fair Tribal Art Asian Art Archaeology

September 10 — 15, 2019

This September, I will be in attendance at the annual Parcours des Mondes in Saint-Germain-des-Près & Beaux-Arts district of Paris. Parcours des Mondes is the premier event of its kind, devoted to the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas, as well as archaeology. Founded in 2002, the fair was originally dedicated to 'tribal art', but in recent years, has expanded to include antiquities and Asiatica. Visitors will have the opportunity to survey more than sixty international galleries presenting a wildly diverse array of artifacts.

For the very first time, Art of the Ancestors will be covering the various events and ongoings at Parcours des Mondes. I look forward to sharing detailed insights, as well as our deep and abiding appreciation of the arts of Island Southeast Asia, the Pacific and beyond.

To our evergrowing tribe of readers, if you spot me on the streets of Paris, please do say hello! I would be thrilled to make your acquaintance.

— Steven G. Alpert, founder of Art of the Ancestors
