Organized by Ateliers d’Art de France, the international biennale of contemporary art will open this evening, Thursday. 

More than 35, 000 visitors are expected to visit the fair, which puts Norway at the center this year.

Rune Bjåstad, Ministerial advisor for culture and communication, told Norwegian news agency NTB that the Norway’s honoring has already received considerable press coverage by French newspapers, magazines, and journals.

“This includes a hundred square meter-sized Norwegian stand in the middle of the exhibition area in the prestigious Grand Palais,” he said.

Crown Princess Mette-Marit, who will be fronting Norwegian design, is to visit additional Norwegian and French art and design exhibitions before French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius opens the fair at 7pm.                         

HRH will firstly stop by “On Time”, an exhibition featuring 19 Norwegian designers who will present their work to the Paris Design Week.

The Crown Princess will then visit the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, located in the Louvre's western wing, where she will be given a tour of the exhibition “La mécanique des dessous, une histoire indiscrète de la silhouette”.
