Parcours des Mondes was first launched in 2002. Since then, it quickly grew to become the world’s leading tribal art fair. The organizers make this claim on account of the number, quality, and diversity of the participating dealers every year. Each autumn, this fair has reunited galleries with specialties in the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas as well as the fields of Asian art and classical archaeology. Of course, efforts are also made to introduce new dealers and galleries each time this event takes place. It is the perfect opportunity to make an entrance onto the stage!

The utmost highest standards are applied to the selection of dealers and galleries to take part in Parcours des Mondes. Rigorous criteria have been developed by the organizers, which must be adhered to for new participants to join. Each gallery offers an intimate presentation of often-unknown masterpieces from communities around the globe. The range of artwork exhibited here is incredible. Easily affordable ethnographic pieces are available alongside rare works much sought after by collectors.

It is not just one, single location that is chosen as the venue for Parcours des Mondes. Participants from around the world set up their exhibitions in a number of existing galleries in the Saint Germain des Pres neighborhood of Paris, a picturesque and historic area that has become the world capital for tribal art. The website of the event has a helpful map of the locations of all the many galleries that take part and host exhibitions. It is possible to filter the results of the map according to tribal art, Asian art, or archeology, so collectors know which locations to head to first!

Parcours des Mondes is, without a doubt, an unmissable event for anyone passionate about tribal art. Its mission is to bring the beauty of non-Western art to as wide an audience as possible. No matter your level of knowledge with regards to tribal art, walking through the streets of Paris from gallery to gallery, taking in so many incredible exhibitions is an enchanting experience.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
