cutlog Paris contemporary art fair finds itself in the international off-fairs dynamic and is now a rendez-vous since its opening six years ago. Focused on avant-garde, breakthrough artists and discovery, cutlog offers a platform to up and coming artists, as well as a bridge among galleries, established collectors and institutions.
Since its kick off, cutlog has steadily gathered the best selection of worldwide press, collectors, museum directors, foreign and French institution directors, curators and art lovers.
In 2013, over 18,000 visitors visited cutlog, attracted by the impressive selection of international galleries, by the wide art and cultural programme of conferences, curatorial projects, performances as well as landmark events such as the ARTE/cutlog Prize and the 5th Artist’s film festival.
During the fair, the cutlog club welcomes daily screenings for the Artist’s film festival, a programme of performances and a series of curatorial projects. At night, the cutlog club becomes an “After-fair” for artists, collectors, musicians, professionals and art lovers with Dj-sets and live performances.

The ARTE / cutlog Prize lies originally on a common wish to support and encourage the emerging contemporary creation. The Prize has indeed helped many artists to develop their work and make new productions thanks to a 5,000€ prize generously offered by ARTE.
Last year, the American artist William Scott was awarded by a jury of experts from the art world : Fabrice Bousteau (director of Beaux Arts Magazine), Bertrand Lavier (artist), Sydney Picasso (writer and collector), Eugène Riconneaus (shoe-designer), Zhenchen Liu (artist), Barbara Carlotti (singer) and Angélique Oussedik (responsible for ARTE cultural actions). The work and the artistic process of the winner were associated with the values of the TV Channel : audacity, creativity and involvment. The prize was accompanied by a three-months residency in Paris with the support of the Regional council of Île-de-France.
The previous winners were : Cristian Bors and Marius Ritiu (Roumanie, Prize 2011), represented by gallery Marion de Cannière (Antwerp, Belgium), Oliver Bragg (United Kingdom, Prize 2012), represented by gallery EGP (Paris, France) and William Scott (USA, Prize 2013), represented by gallery Creative Growth (Oakland, USA). The three selection criteria are originality and relevance of the work, artistic career and consistency of the artistic process.
