THE COLLECTORS: A PRIVLEDGED RELATIONSHIP
Since it’s beginnings, SLICK has positioned itself as an alternative to traditional contemporary art fairs by creating an event that is on a human scale and that is based on two main pillars: art and people. Since the relationship between collectors, fairs and the art market is at the heart of SLICK’s reflections, SLICK Attitude builds on this legacy by being a place for discovering and meeting artists, in a space that stimulates discussions and networking:
- Each morning, from 10am to 12pm, the fair will open its spaces exclusively to VIP guests in order to give them time and space for appreciating the works and discovering new artists. Breakfast will be served.
- A Lounge Bar is being proposed by Red Design. The Scandinavian spirit of the 1950s meets contemporary Paris in a great spot for good times and stimulating meetings.
- Contemporary art experts from the Barter company will proposed thematic, guided tours.
- Partnerships between collector groups and companies are in place, so that their members and clients can be properly welcomed at the fair
