    Get a very private tour of Slick art fair with its two co-founders and get the unique chance to meet with young and talented galleries and artists.

    SLICK Attitude is the 9th edition of the SLICK fair. This year, this meeting space will bring together thirty galleries during contemporary art week in Paris. On the banks of the river Seine, just a few steps away from the Grand Palais where the FIAC will be hosted, these galleries will present their artists in generous spaces.

    Since it’s beginnings, SLICK has positioned itself as an alternative to traditional contemporary art fairs by creating an event that is on a human scale and that is based on two main pillars: art and people. Since the relationship between collectors, fairs and the art market is at the heart of SLICK’s reflections, SLICK Attitude builds on this legacy by being a place for discovering and meeting artists, in a space that stimulates discussions and networking.

    The fair will open its spaces exclusively to Gertrude guests in order to give them time and space for appreciating the works and discovering new artists.

    About the artist

    Johan Tamer-Morael and Aude de Bourbon Parme

    Johan Tamer-Morael

    Johan studied in the United States, where he worked in numerous art galleries and frequently attended art fairs, especially alternative events. Returning to France and influenced by his American discoveries, he decided to open his gallery, JTM Gallery, where he presented young emerging artists like Bertrand Planes and Etienne de Fleurieu. He created SLICK, in 2006, with Aude de Bourbon Parme, then a journalist. They focused from the very beginning on gallery owners and artists from their generation. They conceived SLICK as an alternative, or rather a complementary event to FIAC.


    Aude de Bourbon Parme

    After a Masters' degree in Art History at the Paris Sorbonne University, Aude de Bourbon Parme embraced two complementary paths, both linking language and contemporary art: art events' communication and journalism. Her chosen field: the emerging artistic scene. She started writing in 2001 in the culture section of the newspaper "L'Humanité", and has been writing on contemporary art since 2002 for magazines such as "Art Actuel" and "Beaux Arts Magazine". In 2011, she became editor-in-chief of SLICKER within SLICK Paris. Since 2006,  she is the associate director in charge of communication of the SLICK art fair.
