"A Gallery for Artists and Collectors
who are Independent of Mind, Brave and Loyal."

FRAMExperience

Starting in 2018, we launched the first edition of FRAMExperience, a fair where a select group of galleries and innovative, digital start-ups gathered together devoting themselves to art. The first edition of FRAMExperience took place in no less than the 7tharrondissement in Paris, France. After its undoubtable success, FRAMExperience continued and still continues to raise awareness on matters as the changes in the art market. Furthermore, FRAME has expanded to further fairs in Miami, Basel, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, etc.

 FRAMExperience Paris, an intimate event and a laboratory for experimentation.

 

As Paris is already crowded with fairs and the French market overall isn’t too substantial, we aimed to go for an intimate project and make it the perfecto opportunity and place to try all our new and more daring concepts. Some, for instance, had been mixing exhibitors and relevant digital start-ups, tradition and modernity, food and music, etc. 

A continuous evolution of projects, lectures and contemporary art on the walls, with changes of curation were given on a daily basis.  All was centered in few spaces in the heart of Paris, within walking distance from some of the most significant monuments of the city, but also FIAC.

 

FRAMExperience Paris was the perfect place for testing and sharing new ideas and concepts, including a test of the mutual compatibility of 55Bellechasse and new business partners or even collaborators. 

As a result, we have concluded that that Paris was a useful testing ground for both ideas and activities – and would inform significantly the decision making for what we do in Miami, how we do it and with whom we do it.

 

FRAMExperience Miami, the more innovative.

 

The main idea is to address accurately the needs of the contemporary art ecosystem.

Indeed, many of its very important participants are struggling to fit themselves within existing options that seem to make sense only for the biggest and the richest.

We wanted to work on long term solutions focusing on the real needs of artists, galleries, start-ups and traditional collectors.

We have focused and continue to do son on marketing solutions, and securing money flows for medium-term durations.

We refuse to solely be a place where Art is for sale, or where startups are only looking for clients; and therefore we have aimed and accomplished to be a place where attendees can decide to commit to entrepreneurial and artistic adventures and join as benefactors, shareholders or ambassadors.

 

FRAMExperience Basel, where artistic tradition reigns but where innovation can still find a home.

 

In the medium to long term we are defining FRAMExperience Basel as mostly targeting major collectors, institutions and museums. We will focus on featuring museum-quality artworks, created by the best-in-class artists from a dozen of the most interesting, international and emerging galleries. 

There are to be collectors’ dinners, private visits, conferences, live events etc. 

FRAMExperience Basel benefits from a superb location 300 meters from Art Basel.

This will become the Center of Gravity of all FRAMExperience events, an annual event where any emerging artist and dealer will be anxious to earn an invitation to exhibit.

In its first iteration which took place in June 2018, despite suffering the inevitable consequences of an untried debut of modestly novel ideas – created under significant time pressure – we were and are highly optimistic that we are “ on to something good”.
