Revelations Grand Palais 2019| Exhibition


Initiated by Ateliers d’Art de France since 2013, Révélations is an international fine craft and creation exhibition acting as a meeting place for some of the most talented craftspeople in the world. The biennial reunites a constantly increasing and wide audience:  collectors, architects, decorators, gallery owners, purchasing offices, in addition to artistic directors and luxury goods houses.

I was invited in May 2019 to visit Revelations at Grand Palais. The location itself is so iconic, I really loved it.

We had our VIP tickets to visit the night before the actual event and had nice one on one conversations with some of the artists and craftspeople at the show. We also enjoyed a lovely dinner at the venue.

Customized workshops and knowledge sharing activities have been specially devised to celebrate the Arab creative community. Facebook’s 6-day physical presence will showcase how people can use the platform to connect and build communities in memorable, creative and responsible ways.

An exhibition highlighting eight of the brightest Emirati talents from across the country, UAE Design Stories: The Next Generation from The Emirates is a vehicle for generating awareness on the emerging creative profiles from the UAE.

The roadshow exhibition ‘Original Comes from Vitra’ consists of series of booths, each dedicated to telling the story of a Vitra original. Each booth will narrate the history of the product with drawings, sketches and photographs of prototypes. Examples include some of world’s most iconic pieces of furniture; the Panton chair, the Standard chair by Jean Prouve and the Lounge Chair by Charles & Ray Eames.
