The inaugural edition of Paris+ par Art Basel brought together 156 premier galleries from 30 countries and territories – including 61 exhibitors with spaces in France – in a new flagship event that further amplifies Paris's international standing as a cultural capital.

A strong line-up of galleries from France was joined by exhibitors from across Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America and the Middle East for a global showcase of the highest quality. Reaching beyond the Grand Palais Éphémère, the fair presented an active cultural programme from morning to night, all week, and throughout the city, through a robust programme of collaborations with Paris's cultural institutions and its city-wide sector sites.
