The Art [ ] Collector selection committee has picked its winner, a choice coinciding with FIAC 2016. Evelyne and Jacques Deret — collectors and initiators of the project — have chosen French photographer Charles Fréger. Two solo exhibitions will be organised for him in 2017: the first at the Patio Art Opéra, in Paris, the second at the Patinoire Royale/Galerie Valérie Bach, in Brussels. These exhibitions will be accompanied by the publication of a catalogue. Evelyne and Jacques Deret launched this project to reach out to a new public by presenting artworks outside of their usual context, in other words, museums and galleries. Loaned by collectors, works — whether by historic or emerging artists — are shown in private spaces and communicate with one another.
