7.5.      Obligations of loyalty and transparency – obtaining the necessary authorisations to hold the Event

Any agreements to participate in any Events promoted by the Organiser on the Marketplace are concluded between the Organiser and the selected Artists.

The Organiser undertakes to comply with the legislation applicable to the exercise of a commercial activity (in particular, registration, accounting, social and tax obligations) as well as the laws and regulations applicable to the organisation of the Events proposed via the Marketplace in force in the country where the Event takes place.   

The Organiser is required to clearly identify and present himself or herself as a professional on the Marketplace.

is the organiser is forbidden to present himself or herself as a consumer or a non-professional, under penalties provided for in the provisions of Article L 132-2 of the French Consumer Code.

7.7.      Liability of the Organiser in holding the Event

It is recalled that the role of the Marketplace is only to connect the Organisers and the Artists.

Once the Marketplace has communicated to the Organiser the list of Artists who have replied to the Call for Applications, the Organisers and the Artists shall be put in touch through the Marketplace’s mail service. From that moment, the Organiser manages the direct contractual relationship with the Artist for the purpose of participating in the Event.

For this purpose and in general, the Marketplace may not be held responsible for the difficulties encountered by the Organiser in the realisation of the Event or in the participation of the Artist in the Event arising between the Artist and the Organiser from their connection through the Marketplace, the Organisers being then only engaged in a contractual relationship with the Artist.

Thus, when the Organiser decides to retain the application of an Artist who will participate in an Event, and as soon as the Organiser makes contact with the Artist, the Organiser concludes a contract with said Artist, and the Organiser is then required to perform the promised service as described in the advertisement. Failing to do so, the Organiser remains solely responsible for the management of the contractual relationship with the Artist and undertakes to settle all litigation that may arise, especially with regard to disputes arising from the following difficulties, without this list being exhaustive:

  • refusal to follow up on an application;
  • the cancellation of an Event;
  • a change of circumstances related to the organisation of the Event, such as a change of dates or places;
  • disputes arising from inaccurate information appearing in the announcements of the Calls for Applications; or
  • the dissemination of a false Call for Application.

Aix-en-Provence
Du 06/05/2021 au 10/05/2021

THE SM'ART!... It is ARTY, an avant-garde and innovative artistic meeting, it is also a talent finder, which welcomes every year 200 artists and 25 galleries, but also 25.000 visitors, collectors, art lovers, curious people who let themselves be charmed by unique artworks.

For Aix-en-Provence and its region, "LE SM'ART" is a flagship with its 25,000 visitors and their strong purchasing power potential.
A "top of the range" clientele rich in culture, knowledge and sensitivity to art...to its plethora of collectors, art lovers and beautiful creations...The show's collectors will be attentive to your personality through your creations.

The exhibition’s concept: 5 days dedicated to contemporary art, on 12,000m2 in the heart of the city centre, in an emblematic place of the City of Aix-en-Provence, the Parc Jourdan. A huge open-air gallery where selected exhibitors will present the latest contemporary creations in their stands. The SM'ART remains an open-air fortress for the defence of contemporary lʼart.

A meeting place for contemporary art professionals, visual artists, painters, sculptors, photographers, designers, craftsmen and vintage and for 20 French and international art galleries, it serves to highlight and promote  emerging or recognized artists, and the galleries exhibiting their artists.

A huge ephemeral gallery punctuated by astonishing new works.

Finding the path of all possible

Let’s continue to keep alive the cultural momentum that radiate our land.This means relying on the belief that art and creation are federating spaces for emotion and reflection, as extraordinary as they are precious for living together in a world where withdrawal has taken over...
