cutlog, a Parisian, cutting-edge contemporary art fair dedicated to promoting international galleries which are supporting emerging artists, will hold its third edition from the 20th to the 23rd of October 2011. The galleries of cutlog 2011 will present artworks from their emerging artists, as well as the latest works from their established positions. cutlog is both an alternative and a complement to the other art fairs, focused on presenting under-the-radar galleries, it offers a platform to up and coming artists, as well a bridge between galleries and established collectors. Held under the dome of the Bourse de Commerce, France’s historical equivalent of Wall Street. It is a skip and a jump away from the Grand Palais, the Louvre and the Centre Pompidou. There, in the circular, 1000 meter square room, it disrupts th e typical, stern patterns of fairs and encourages a dialogue from galleries to visitors.

A selection of 35 international and French galleries, will offer a new visibility and a move away from Parisian art fairs. Since its kick-off three years ago, Cutlog has steadily gathered the upper crust of worldwide press, collectors, museum directors, curators and art lovers. The fair opens to the Guest of Honour and for the press on Wednesday 19th, followed by 4 days of open views alongside thematic conferences and artists films.

Last year, cutlog welcomed 15 000 visitors from all other the world.

This « salon » confirmed his status as the most international French satellite art fair: more than ten countries will participate to cutlog 2011, galleries will come from Asia, USA and Europe.Described as “la crème de la fair” by Dazed and Confused and ”the most European art fair” by Beaux Arts magazine, it has steadily gathered the upper crust of worldwide press and buyers – and no less is expected for this year.

The Swiss bank Pictet & Cie has confirmed its support and commitment to contemporary art by being cutlog’s main sponsor. A pre-opening and a private dinner will be organized for the European Clients.
As one of culog’s main partners Mercedes Benz will provide a limousine service for collectors during the fair.For the second successive year, Bavaria will be supporting contemporary art by being one of cutlog’s main sponsors.
