Sustainable development

 

SLICK is committed to sustainable development and pledges to reduce its environmental impact, create ties to the local artistic community, and promote awareness of sustainability issues among all those involved.

 

Aware that an event such as an art fair can cause a negative impact on the environment, we consider the different actions permitting us to limit this. It is thus an opportunity to create links with our partners and the public, and to make a positive contribution to the arts and local community. Our medium/long-term approach is foreseen as a process of continuous improvement and transparency.

About

Taking place in October, SLICK joins a key moment in the French artistic calendar: the contemporary art week in Paris. A moment when institutions, galleries, associations, foundations, fairs and all actors in the French art scene welcome collectors and art lovers from around the world.

Since 2006, SLICK co-founders Johan Tamer-Morael and Aude de Bourbon Parme have collaborated with passionate galleries who persistently contribute towards promoting the French and International art scene. Whether located at the CentQuatre, the Palais de Tokyo esplanade, or on the Banks of the River Seine, SLICK welcomes on average 13,000 visitors each year.

Since 2006, SLICK has organized and gathered together:

– 10 French editions of the fair (Bellevilloise, 104, Palais de Tokyo, Alexandre III Bridge)
– 2 Belgian editions of the fair
– 415 international galleries
– more than 1,300 artists
– 60 exhibition days
– 136,000 visitors
– More than 600 press articles
– All with one dedicated team
